ARTbreak: Out of the Shadows: Light in Contemporary Art with Fiona Ragheb
Dates: Tue Feb 28, 17
Out of the Shadows: Light in Contemporary Art
with West Michigan Area Show juror Fiona Ragheb
Light is a precondition for vision, and thus fundamental to the experience of art. Moreover, the use of light and shadow has given three dimensional form to illusionistic art for hundreds of years. But in the hands of contemporary artists, light has become the very medium of artistic expression.
A curator with more than 20 years experience, Ms. Ragheb holds advanced degrees in art History and architecture. Her career includes work at the Walker Art Center, the Guggenheim Museum and Broad Art Foundation.
Ms. Ragheb's talk is sponsored by Stryker as part of the KIA's 2016-17 women artist series.
