Thursday, October 6, 12:00 p.m.
Sharp Building, 37 S. Wabash Ave., room 903
Jacqueline Surdell’s work is informed by a genuine curiosity about the power of art, its craft, materials, processes and the cultures from which they derive. Surdell is interested in exploring the troubling distinctions between materials (soft and hard), structures (rigid and collapsed), and construction techniques (gendered as masculine and feminine). Her recent move to conjoin the language of sports culture and her elaborate knotted installations demonstrates an interest in finding connections between seemingly disparate cultural practices and performances.
