As opposed to my first two event blogs taking place at the Fowler, I decided to pick an exhibit from the Hammer Museum as my third blog. This exhibit is called Between Starshine and Clay by Kiyan Williams.
During our week 5 class and visit to the Fowler Museum, I found interest in the other exhibits of the museum, so I thought it would be exciting to expand on my previous thoughts and get more information on them. For my first blog I wrote about the Almighty God exhibit, but another amazing exhibit in the Fowler was the “Imaginary Trip”, by Congolese artist Gosette Lubondo.
During our week 5 class and visit to the Fowler Museum, I found interest in the other exhibits of the museum, so I thought it would be exciting to expand on my previous thoughts and get more information on them. One of these exhibits was based around “How Do You See The World?: The Art of Almighty God''. This exhibit has various pieces from the Ghanaian artist Kwame Akoto, who calls himself God Almighty.
Attending the HOX Zodiac: Honoring the Horse event was one of my favorite outside events to attend. I did not really understand the concept of this event until a few more minutes into the webinar. From my understanding, there is an intersection between the Chinese Zodiac (animals) and the human sphere, as it attempts to remove the human-animal barrier.
After attending Nina’s Sobell’s event presentation, I can confidently say that it was one of the most intriguing and unique experiences in viewing art that I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. Seeing decades of her work embracing technological theory and electronics is truly remarkable. The figures that I will place throughout this blog posts are some of the pieces that I found to be the most interesting and captivating to me.
