Since childhood, 85-year old Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz has felt the necessity to tell her story through her work, compelled too by human amnesia that allows tragedy to be a way of life. Her meanings are embodied in her materials, and none is more revolutionary in her hands than fiber—sensory, bodily, and real. This talk will trace the artist’s life through her art, and look at the world we share with her and in which she asks us to care.
Join us for a lecture with Mary Jane Jacob, a curator and writer whose work has spanned from premiering artists to US museum audiences—including Abakanowicz in 1982—to pioneering of public and socially engaged art.
