Avantika Bawa artist lecture this Friday!

Avantika Bawa (ATL) will be speaking about her new project this Friday, November 2 at 3pm in the Autzen Gallery. Bawa is a visual artist, curator, and co-founder of the arts and culture magazine Drain (http://www.drainmag.com)

Working site-specifically as well as with objects fabricated in her studio, Bawa continues to explore the relationship of these objects with the time and space they occupy. In Sit, Stack Bawa puts the act of drawing into the service of sculptural design so that handmade gestures intimately connect to architectural supports. Functional flat materials such as cardboard and Styrofoam become flexible three-dimensional structures. Bawa's work defines a new territory that allows for subtlety, anti-monumentality and unexpected levels of candor.

Her exhibition Sit, Stack is opening this Saturday Nov. 3 in the Autzen. Please join us for the reception from 5-7p.

Sit, Stack runs from Nov. 3-29, 2007
