This new, solo exhibit will be composed of over 20 breathtaking works. Laget&rsquo;s signature shaped painting, and lithographs, though firmly rooted in an art historical context, have been inspired by her life experiences in locations such as Southwestern America, Japan and North Africa.&nbsp;</span><span style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Her recent shaped, abstract, geometric canvases are resolutely illusionistic yet intellectually playful, filled with ambiguous spaces suggesting an expansive aerial landscape, an architectural interior or an urban skyline, while wrapped in highly improvisational and intuitive, lush and sensual color. &nbsp;</p> <p class="normal" style="text-align: justify;">Mokha Laget was born in North Africa. As a graduate of Corcoran School of Art, she met Washington Color School painter Gene Davis. Although inspired by Davis, Laget&rsquo;s unique techniques have successfully showcased her artistic excellence. Her ability to pristinely intertwine colors and shape has been influenced by her expertise in clay pigments. &nbsp;</p> <p class="normal" style="text-align: justify;">The opening reception of <em>Color into Space</em> will take place on Friday, July 29, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. The event is free of charge. Following the opening reception, Laget&rsquo;s artwork will be displayed at the museum through October 30, 2016.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Arcadia Lecture series will feature the artist speaking about her work on September 22<sup>nd</sup>, at 6 pm at the Museum.</p> Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:10:19 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - Busan Museum of Art - September 3rd - November 30th <p style="text-align: justify;">The Busan Biennale is a biannual international contemporary art show that integrated three different art events held in the city in 1998: the Busan Youth Biennale, the first biennale of Korea that was voluntarily organized by local artists in 1981; the Sea Art Festival, an environmental art festival launched in 1987 with the sea serving as a backdrop; and the Busan International Outdoor Sculpture Symposium that was first held in 1991. The biennale was previously called the Pusan International Contemporary Art Festival (PICAF) before it launched.<br /><br />The biennale has its own unique attribute in that it was formed not out of any political logic or need but rather the pure force of local Busan artists&rsquo; will and their voluntary participation. Even to this day their interest in Busan's culture and its experimental nature has been the key foundation for shaping the biennale&rsquo;s identity.<br /><br />This biennale is the only one like it in the world that was established through an integration of three types of art events such as a Contemporary Art Exhibition, Sculpture Symposium, and Sea Art Festival. The Sculpture Symposium in particular was deemed to be a successful public art event, the results of which were installed throughout the city and dedicated to revitalizing cultural communication with citizens.&nbsp;<br /><br />The networks formed through the event have assumed a crucial role in introducing and expanding domestic art overseas and leading the development of local culture for globalized cultural communication. Founded 36 years ago, the biennale aims to popularize contemporary art and achieve art in everyday life by providing a platform for interchanging experimental contemporary art.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.busanbiennale.org/english/sub01/01_2015.php" target="_blank">Outline</a></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.busanbiennale.org/english/sub01/01_02_2015.php" target="_blank">Theme</a></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.busanbiennale.org/waybbs/way_bbs_2015.php?bo_table=c_schedule1_eng" target="_blank">Schedule</a></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.busanbiennale.org/english/sub01/01_04_2015.php" target="_blank">Program</a></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:49:06 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Roger Ballen - Southeast Museum of Photography - September 27th - December 10th <p><strong>One Artist | Two Cities | Two Exhibitions</strong></p> <p><strong>On view at the Southeast Museum of Photography and Snap!
