PhotobucketThis season’s theme for SAIC’s Visiting Artist Program is Living Modern. The program will be linked with the exhibition of the same title at SAIC’s Sullivan Galleries. “Bridging the historic roots of American modernism with the critical practices of contemporary artists and architects, the Learning Modern lecture series focuses on the presence of the Modern today and its vital role in education in the mid-20th century.”

The first artist in this series is Narelle Jubelin. Other artists to follow for this program are Kathleen James-Chakraborty, Andrea Deplazes, Jun Nguyen Hatsushiba,  Christian Veddeler, Liisa Roberts, and Jorge Pardo.

“Narelle Jubelin, an Australian artist based in Madrid, revisits aspects of modernist perception for the twenty-first century. Known for works that weave through legacies of education, art, architecture, memory, and cultural heritage, Jubelin will reflect on her latest project, Key Notes, on view in the Learning Modern exhibition. In this work, transcriptions of critical modernist texts are embedded into sumptuously colored fabrics, creating a site-specific environment of narrative, geometric planes in homage to Mies van der Rohe and his collaborator Lilly Reich.”
