Interrupta narratio by Alice Raymond and Carol Jazzar (Ongoing Event)

Event Type: Art Exhibitions
Age Group(s): Family (All Ages)
Date: 10/19/2017 - 2/18/2018
Description:
 We create narratives with words, images and symbols, and with these tools we tell or depict stories. Fixed on a sheet of paper, the narrative is now subject to interpretation. Each reader or viewer coming with his or her own personal history, knowledge and appreciation will often see the proposed narrative differently than the artistís intent. Perception differs. Furthermore, a narrative is subject to time and context. What we understand or see at one moment can change one month or years later. In that regard, we can say that narratives are partial and multiple.

Interrupta narratio, featuring works by Alice Raymond and Carol Jazzar, offers viewers an infinite number of possible narratives. The exhibit, which includes drawings and collages, is a visual essay. Although using different techniques, both artists create compositions that stem from instinctive choices: automatic drawings for Raymond and cut‑outs from Artforum magazines for Jazzar. Works are poetic or absurd depending on oneís perception.

An opening reception & artist talk for this exhibition will take place on Saturday, October 21, from 3:00‑ 5:00 p.m.
