February 23, 7:00 p.m. | Online via Zoom

Speaker Eric Karpeles will discuss Józef Czapski (1896-1993) witnessed first-hand the turmoil of twentieth-century Europe, as a military officer, art and literary critic, disciplined chronicler of his own experiences, and above all, as a as a painter adept at isolating the subtle meaning of everyday life. At a time when abstract art tends to dominate aesthetic discourse, he prefers to observe the world around him, representing people going about their daily business. Some of his most fascinating works depict theatergoers and art lovers engaged in the same process – gazing intently.

2022 Critical Issues Lecture Series: Dozie Kanu

February 25, 12:00 p.m. | Online via Zoom

The general public is invited to join the Fine Arts graduates to discuss and question contemporary art. This week, Dozie Kanu will speak. Kanu’s research focuses on a concept of sculpture that examines the limits of form, function, materiality and utility often filtered through a personal lens drawn from the artist’s lived experiences. His singular visual language critiques the canons of Western art history, subtly and elegantly revealing within the objects narratives involving colonialism and identity, focusing on their diasporic condition. His works resist classification and simultaneously exist as communicative or performative objects. He recently extended this research to photography.
