Suplex presents The Narrative Process - Joe Joe Orangias: Additive/Subtractive Context
Join us for a presentation of "The Narrative Process" featuring current artist-in-residence at the Galveston Artist Residency Joe Joe Orangias. "Additive/Subtractive Context" considers how historical artistic processes may be re-conceptualized to directly address social and political contexts of our time. Using the additive/subtractive process of sculpture, artist Joe Joe Orangias will discuss how two of his recent sculptures on Galveston Island add and subtract materials from public space in order to propose a more equitable locale. By working with iconic representations of minority communities, his collaborative projects transform common objects to engage a diverse audience in deeper social issues. "Pink Dolphin Monument" works toward inclusivity for gender and sexual minority communities, while "Urning
Archives" realizes a practice of decolonization.
This event is limited to 15 participants.
