The University Art Gallery is pleased to announce a reception for the Scrutiny art exhibition by Haleh Niazmand at 6:00 pm on Thursday, the 22nd of September, with an artist talk at 6:30 pm. The gallery is located inside the Theatre building on campus.
Scrutiny is a collection of three bodies of artwork addressing separate but related topics. The Crumbling “Isms” is a meditation on some of the political ideologies that while largely rejected, appear to be the creeping trends in global politics. Urban Artifacts are paintings of discarded and littered objects on the streets of Oakland, California, reflecting on the disparity caused by the growing housing and economic crisis in urban California. Finally Everyday Heroes is a series of portrait drawings combined with a brief text extracted from interviews, honoring the struggles and triumphs of twelve individuals, eleven of whom are from Stanislaus and San Joaquin Counties. Together, these artworks aim to highlight the interconnections between, personal, social, and political.
We hope you can join us for this special reception. This event is free and open to the public.
