Paola Pivi: The Limits of An Object
Tishman Auditorium at The New School (66 W. 12th St., Manhattan)
The fall 2011 Public Art Fund Talks series examines the transformative potential of sculpture and its ability to transcend the material presence of an object’s physical form. Italian artist Paola Pivi (now based in Alaska) creates installations, sculpture, performances, and photographs that convey astonishing and enigmatic associations and visual relationships. Her work extends our understanding of the experience of contemporary art. Presented by the Public Art Fund in collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.
