Sonia Almeida in conversation with art historian Gloria Sutton at the CCVA.
Artist Sonia Almeida speaks about her recent paintings and book projects with art historian Gloria Sutton. In her vibrantly-hued works, Almeida uses non-traditional painting materials including plywood, hinges, and LED lights, while also drawing on techniques of printmaking and the history of textiles. Together Almeida and Sutton discuss how meaning becomes encoded within the works and the translation of visual language across mediums.
This program is presented in collaboration with VoCA (Voices in Contemporary Art) and their public programs series VoCA Talks, which features artists and their collaborators in conversation about the challenges and rewards inherent in making, showing, and preserving contemporary art.
The talk will be at the Carpenter Center for Visual Arts (CCVA) at Harvard University in the Level 3, Bookshop, June 20, 6 - 8pm.
Free and open to the public; registration is requested. RSVP
