Artists' Conversation with Dr. Dennis Raverty
In Visual Arts Building Auditorium, Room B 08
February 5, at 7:00pm

Howardena Pindell and Theodore Harris raise critical questions engaging the past and present by examining the influence of Americas' domestic and foreign policy. Howardena Pindell's major work of 13 Video Drawing's in her War Series, uses photography, text, and drawing to confront the history of racism, genocide, and starvation in places such as Cambodia and Africa where the "Third World" is under neo-colonial rule, predatory capitalism, and exploitation with divide and conquer conflicts encouraged by the first world in order to create chaos to steal the rich natural resources.

Theodore Harris' Aesthetic Distance series of collage mixed media triptychs aim at the viewer, visually interrogating questions about blind patriotism that creates wounds from shrapnel on the surfaces of his collages. WAR IS A MAP WOUNDS; examines the human coast of these conflicts.

During the opening reception the public is invited to a public conversation with artist and Dennis Raverty Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Art History, Theory & Criticism New Jersey City University.
