Galveston Arts Center presents Conversations @ The Center: Adela Andea and Pablo Gimenez-Zapiola
Conversations @ The Center is an informal lecture series that provides insight into the artistic process and engages audiences in dialogue about visual art. The theme for 2017, Intersections: Art, Science and Technology, aims to highlight the synergistic link between creative and scientific ideas, and explore some of the ways professional and artistic practices exist at the intersections of these fields.
Adela Andea: Within the medium of light - Simultaneously inspired by the beauty found in nature and the contrasting aesthetic she finds in technology, Adela Andea’s large-scale light installations explore the concept of natural versus artificial and seek to re-examine the notion of separating the two. In her presentation, Andea will address the influence of these concepts on her work and the use of light as an artistic medium within the new media discipline.
Pablo Gimenez-Zapiola: My Way Of Seeing + Merging The Analog With The Digital - Pablo Gimenez-Zapiola employs photography, video, projections, text and computers in his multi-disciplinary work. In recent multi-projection performances, he combined analog thinking with digital tools to transform the viewers’ relationship with time and space. Gimenez-Zapiola will discuss how art can enhance life experiences and establish a unique dialogue with each viewer.
