Artist Talk | (Ex)change: Tori Purcell
New York Art Residency and Studios (NARS) Foundation is pleased to invite you to join our 2011 Juried Solo winner Tori Purcell for an Artist Talk on April 14 at 4 PM. In conjunction with her exhibition, (Ex)change, currently on view at the NARS Foundation Gallery through April 28, Purcell will share the stories and personal recollections which fostered the creation of her photographic series Neither Here and the sculptural installation Dialectic, which acts as an anchor for the exhibition. She will also have the opportunity to offer her insights and perspectives as she introduces us to her previous works and upcoming projects. Please join us for a reception to follow.
(Ex)change examines the globalized economy and its socio-political impact on issues of migration and cultural displacement. Tori Purcell was selected from our 2011 Juried Solo Exhibition Open Call by Juror Nat Trotman, associate curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim, New York.
