On Friday, March 15th, starting at 6:30 p.m. the NAGB will hold an artists’ talk and walkthrough with several artists whose works are supported in this year's National Exhibition (NE9), “The Fruit and The Seed."
Join us as we welcome Saskia D’Aguilar, Rashad Leamount-Davis, Eric Rose, Heino Schmid and Averia Wright as they share the broader inspirations, provocations and curiosities behind their projects. Collectively, they will focus on the role that the environment and social awareness has played on aesthetic decisions, representation (and at times the lack thereof), and concerns around relationships with self and others. We will also discuss the intricacies and contradictions in how they observe their surroundings and growing creative industry.
We will end the discussion with a walkthrough and guided conversation on their projects. As a reminder, this event and all programming in support of the NE9 are FREE and open to the public.
