New FLLAC Program Debuts with Harry Roseman Installation

With the help of student assistants, artist Harry Roseman, professor and chair of the Art Department, began during Winter Break to install “Harry Roseman: Hole in the Wall,” which grew out of a body of work he calls “weave drawings.” The exhibition is the inaugural installation of a new Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center program, curated by Mary-Kay Lombino, who is The Emily Hargroves Fisher '57 and Richard B. Fisher Curator and assistant director for strategic planning at the Art Center. The installation and related events also are part of the annual cultural festival ModFest (see above).

Roseman, whose previous works include the 600-foot-long permanent public art installation “Curtain Wall” in John F. Kennedy International Airport, has called the piece a “conversation” with the space. Visitors to the Art Center may view the work-in-progress until January 19. In addition, Roseman will be on hand to discuss the installation at a “Late Night at the Lehman Loeb” event on January 14. The official opening will take place on Friday, January 29, and will feature a lecture by Roseman, a public screening of the documentary Woven Walls: The Movie, as well as the premiere of composer/violist Adrienne Elisha’s new musical work, “Circle Voices” that explores sonic dimensions of the artwork in the unique “sound-space.”  The exhibition will be on view to the public through May 18, 2010.
