Artist Talk with Diana Al-Hadid
Artist Diana Al-Hadid will discuss the evolution of her artistic practice and works featured in BCA Center’s exhibition, Immaterial, to her most recent body of work.
Admission is free.
Artist Talk with Diana Al-Hadid is presented by The Mollie Ruprecht Fund for Visual Art, UVM, and the BCA Center.
Enter the first floor of the BCA Center (135 Church Street) and encounter a towering sculpture that challenges perception and seems to defy gravity. Phantom Limb (2014) is an ethereal monument to memory, loss, and decay created by internationally recognized artist, Diana Al-Hadid. In Diana Al Hadid: Immaterial, the Syrian-American artist makes use of conventional, industrial building materials in a deceptively delicate way—creating complex, beautiful works that remind us of forgotten ruins and monuments to cultures and civilizations long past. Engaging in an entirely contemporary approach to form, Al-Hadid explores notions of reality, identity, and memory through imaginative and otherworldly forms.
