I want to share that our exhibition Diana Al-Hadid: Nothing is Stable will open as planned in GSUís Welch Gallery (Arts & Humanities Bldg) on 11 January and run until 5 March. Al-Hadid is much in demand these days so weíre thrilled that Atlantans can experience her work in person (health and other pandemic logistics notwithstanding). Although not overtly autobiographical, the artist uniquely draws on her cross-cultural experiences and knowledge. Using traditional and contemporary materials and techniques, she creates intricate sculptures, wall panels, and drawings that reflect her interest in ancient maps, religious texts, scientific treatises, and architectural designs. The Southeastern US has been slow to acknowledge the contributions of contemporary Arab American artists. As the USís current political polarization continues to foment anti-immigrant sentiments, racial and ethnic biases, and indifference to environmental crises, Diana Al-Hadid: Nothing is Stable hopefully demonstrates how the visual arts can inspire positive civic collaboration and engagement.
More details about the show are available through the Eventbrite registration page; We can accommodate 10 people at a time in the gallery. This Art Papers site provides details on her artist talk on 28 January. We have a small brochure and I am in the process of putting together an educatorís page, which will be available on the Welch Gallery website, hopefully by next week.
Best wishes for the beginning of the semester!
