Nadim Karam, Midday Musing Lecture


Monday, October 22, 12:10–1:00 p.m.
Sullivan Center, 36 S. Wabash Ave., suite 1226

Karam's work is a whimsical land of absurdity that makes even his most serious, darkest messages palatable. His manifesto in Urban Toys (2006) is a plea for creating dreams in cities, an artistic combat against terrorism and stultifying routines of city life. One of the rare contemporary artists comfortable on a huge urban scale, Karam's urban projects reveal his transcendent stance between the worlds of art and architecture.
