Diana Al-Hadid JAN 18, 2017 OPENING RECEPTION: DIANA AL-HADID 6:00 pm, ART MUSEUM
The sculptures and paintings of Syrian-born and Ohio-raised Diana Al-Hadid appear to be trapped in an eternal moment of precariousness and decay. Inspired by historical forms from art and architecture, Al-Hadid’s highly material works are charged with drips, textures, patterns, and ornaments that recall Arabic calligraphy and Islamic textile patterns.
Elena Dorfman JAN 18, 2017 OPENING RECEPTION: ELENA DORFMAN 6:00 pm, ART MUSEUM
Through portraiture and audio recordings, Elena Dorfman offers a humanistic perspective to the Syrian conflict, a global crisis that has claimed more than 470,000 lives and driven 6.5 million people from their homes. On assignment with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in 2013, Dorfman documented exiled Syrians in Egypt, Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon. Syria’s Lost Generation documents a small fraction of a population disproportionately affected by the war: teenagers.
