October 19, 2018 | 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Location:
Art Building 672
Speaker:

“magicians of metallurgy
understand the mysteries of liquefying stone
strong as steel and lighter
infinitely malleable
aluminum’s counterpart is mercury
the interpreter
the molybdomantic messenger
the psychopomp leading souls of the dead to new destinations
with the material of airplanes and space ships”

- Marianne Shaneen - from the accompanying exhibition text of Everywhere Possible Therefore True, 2017

This talk is free and open to the public.

Presented as part of Art Now: Visiting Artist & Scholar Series
