Closing Reception for August Artist-in-Residence Alexandra Blum

August 27, 2010 - 6:00pm8:30pm

Silhouettes and Conversations: Articulating a Communal Vision

Alexandra Blum will trace silhouettes of visitors while listening to and recording their descriptions of artworks that are particularly meaningful to them in the permanent collection of the de Young. These silhouettes and the narrated descriptions of the work will form the basis of a mixed-media studio project consisting of drawing, silkscreen, collage, and paint. The artist's conceptual goal of the portraits is to humanize the private individual experience of viewing art and also transform it into a vision of a shared experience.
