Panel Discussion: Remaking the World
featuring artists from the exhibition Simulacrum
Wednesday, Nov. 28, 5:30 p.m.
Canzani Center Auditorium (map it)
In conjunction with the exhibition Simulacrum, artists whose work focuses on the fabrication of identifiable objects join us to discuss what it means to take this path. Whether an act of adoration or critical commentary (or both), re-making “normal” objects and images translates the familiar into the unfamiliar, while introducing layers of evocative new meanings. Moderator Eleanor Heartney is an award-winning, internationally recognized art critic who writes extensively on contemporary art issues for many publications, including Art in America, Artnews, The New Art Examiner, and The New York Times. Her most recent book is Art and Today.
Artists speaking include Tom Burkhardt, Chris Hanson, Tony Matelli, Kaz Oshiro, and Hendrika Sonnenberg.
