People who have saved this event:



ATOA (Artists Talk on Art) Panel Discussion about the material aspect in Heide Hatry's work.

In all of Hatry's projects the material itself is the reality to which she wants to draw attention and through which she wishes to stimulate thought about who we are, what we have done, and what is at stake in our passage through the world. 

Expect a discussion to revolve around such themes with reference to how the material of which the work is made creates a space in which certain reflections are inevitable, in which the normally invisible becomes not only visible but insistent, how knowledge affects our understanding of beauty, and how the dynamic of appearance and reality, or semblance and truth, can be invoked in ostensibly simple images.
