Diana Al-Hadid

July 10–Oct. 11
Artist talk: Sept. 26, 6:30 p.m.
Canzani Center Gallery (map it)

Formal yet liquid, amorphous yet figurative, Diana Al-Hadid’s sculptures explore notions of traditional architecture while adapting elements of painting, stagecraft, and suggestive, open-ended narratives. While the pieces can look like renderings from a fantasy world, they are also intricate studies of space and structure in which the viewer is continually reengaging the work through its constant shift and flow of perspectives.

Al-Hadid’s diverse interests include science and technology, history, and literature. She also incorporates images and narratives rooted in the historical and cultural contexts of her birthplace in the Middle East and upbringing in the American Midwest.
