Parsons Fine Arts Visiting Artists Series: Yamini Nayar

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium (Room N101), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center 66 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003

Yamini Nayar’s (US/India) work intersects photography, sculpture and the language of architecture to foreground questions about the built environment and its psychological and ​social dimensions. In her studio-based practice, photographs are documents made from mixed media assemblages and installations, in which the photograph is the only trace of an invested process of physical construction​. Temporality, materiality and performance are central to her work, as is the hand​.​
Her recent projects have explored ​memory, migration, informal architecture and dwellings, ​modernist architecture, and alternate & imagined modernities.

Presented by Parsons' School of Art, Media and Technology (AMT).
