Connective Conversations: SURFACE AS SUBSTANCE

Ruba Katrib
Curator at Sculpture Center in Long Island City, New York.

Following artists who explore the malleability of materials and their implications—from the scientific to the social and political—this talk responds to the emergence of new material concerns in current art, grounding the discussion in the works of a key group of historical and new artists who use active substances in their works.

Connective Conversations is a partnership between The Ford Family Foundation and the University of Oregon School of Architecture and Allied Arts. In 2015, the program partnership expanded to include the Oregon College of Art and Craft and the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College.
