Artist Talk: Walid Raad

04:00 pm to 06:00 pm
Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University
https://events.iu.edu/artmuseum/view/event/event_id/123365

Lebanese-American conceptual artist Walid Raad will discuss his work and forthcoming projects, preceded by a gallery talk by Margaret Graves and Elliot Reichert.

Walid Raad is a Lebanese artist whose works include film, photography, multimedia installations, and public performances. Most of his work deals with the contemporary history of Lebanon and the wars in Lebanon between 1975 and 1991. He is also often concerned with the representation of traumatic events of collective historical dimensions; and the ways film, video, and photography function as documents of physical and psychological violence. He is also a member of the Arab Image Foundation. Raad lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon and New York. He received an M.A. from Boston University and an M.A. and a Ph.D. from the University of Rochester. He is a professor in the School of Art at The Cooper Union and at Home Workspace, Beirut, Lebanon.

The Republic Building
https://events.iu.edu/soaadiub/view/event/event_id/104843

The Indiana University J. Irwin Miller Architecture Program presents Doreen McCarthy in the gallery at The Republic Building (333 2nd Street, Columbus, IN 47201).

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 9 from 6:00-8:00 pm. The exhibition will run from April 9 – May 5, 2020.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Doreen McCarthy’s Artist Statement:
“My work is a consequential step of giving form to space and imagination. The sculptures are about how to change something in a way that keeps the before, after and intervening transformation equally visible the transformative abilities of art-condensation of materials, context, community and intent-are the core of my art making practice. Perceptions of art can be considered and understood within the milieu of one’s environment and as a paradigm of culture. Specific site projects inform the development of my new sculptures as the history of each place provides context for the image, scale and material within the public or private domain.

My production often appears to present aesthetic oxymoron’s that occupy both sides of formal and conceptual oppositions such as material versus effect. I am currently developing sculptures that continue to circumvent barriers of spatial articulation.

I have worked with non-traditional materials employing corrugated cardboard, inflated plastic, nylon and Plexiglas both in the studio and with the aid of industrial fabricators. I explore scale, building and modeling of objects, translucency and the absence and presence of objecthood.

Physically shifting the scale, material and site alters the subjectivity of experience. My current work is intended to further incorporate this dialogue and apply it to a larger, public space designed to change the way we are informed by and see the world we live in, questioning the notions of perception and how the conversation between timelessness and static objecthood may be renegotiated.”
