A Solo Project by Dawit Petros
Jan. 7 - Feb. 6
Opening Reception:Jan. 7, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Room Gallery (R); Admission is free.
Dawit Petros’ semi-autobiographical artworks investigate the confluence of place and subjectivity through the lens of modernist aesthetics inspired by Adrian Piper, Vito Acconci and Sol LeWitt. Drawing upon his impressions of emigrating from the small East African country of Eritrea to the United States by way of Saskatchewan, Canada, Petros balances the complex histories of Western Aesthetics and Global Diaspora – two corpuses typically opposed – in a poetic and philosophic manner.
