Art Historian Julie Chun will take us through an exhibition by American artist Maya Kramer. Kramer’s work speaks to humanity’s fraught relationship with its environment, using surprising materials such as ice, coal, rust, newspaper, and laundry detergent to fashion works and tableaux that conjure a sense of both estrangement and loss. Time, entropy, and transience also figure prominently in her overture and serve as a reminder of the limits of human perspective. Her work has been shown, among others, at the Hong Kong Arts Centre, the Van Abbe Museum, and the Shanghai Gallery of Art.
