Lunchtime Talk | Vida Simon, Drawing

Carried Away | Vida Simon in collaboration with Jack Stanley
Wednesday, March 29, 2017 - 11:30am

Please join us for a lunchtime talk with drawing artist Vida Simon I Room 340, South Building

Vida Simon's work incorporates various media to form site-responsive installations and performances. A running thread throughout her work is drawing, a form that most directly expresses the artist's interests in visual storytelling, improvisation, and elemental materials. She has presented projects internationally in a wide range of contexts—galleries, hotel rooms, storefronts, theatres, rooftops, a former synagogue, an old horse stable, and a century-old house on Fogo Island, Newfoundland.

Recently, Vida completed a long duration residency with 3e impérial (Granby, Quebec) and is currently preparing for a solo show at Kunsthalle Lingen (Germany) in 2017.

This lunchtime talk is presented by the Audain Faculty of Visual Art and Material Practice.
