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).
