Department of Art Brings Contemporary Artists to Campus

End Date: 2/5/2016End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description
This semester the Department of Art continues ART NOW: Visiting Artists Lecture Series, a series of lectures by contemporary studio artists. All faculty, students and staff are invited to a lecture presented by Farhad Bahram, the first of 3 artists this semester. He will present Friday, Feb. 5, 2016 at 4 p.m. in the Art Bldg. Rm. 212. Bahram’s work revolves around the idea of ‘affirmative destruction’ and negating the peripheral relationship between medium and message. In his works, destructed medium appears as a cultural object that is not self-sufficient or merely related to the archeology of its existence but rather to the contingency of its reception within the space. His work has been exhibited internationally in more than 30 shows and exhibitions, including Gowanus Loft, Brooklyn, NY; Yerba Buena Center For the Arts, San Francisco, CA; Mission Cultural Center, San Francisco, CA; Reed College, Portland, OR; Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Eugene, OR; Asian Resource Gallery, Oakland, CA; Umpqua Valley Arts Center, Roseburg, OR; Siuslaw Public Library, Florence, OR; Plâtre et Moi Gallery, Paris, France; Laatikkomo, Jyväskylä, Finland; Aaran Gallery, Tehran, Iran; Fravahr Art Gallery, Tehran, Iran; Sazmanab Center for Contemporary Art, Tehran, Iran. ART NOW aims to introduce Willamette students and the greater Salem community to provocative contemporary artists working today. Through public lectures and studio workshops, ART NOW visiting artists will provide insight on their artwork and studio practice, as well as share their research and inspiration. Although Mr. Bahram will speak at 4 p.m., remaining lectures (TBD) begin at 7 p.m. in Art Building 212, and are free and open to the public.
