Transfer seminar: Contemporary Art and the Liminal Space: Refuge for the divine in an empirical world?
Please note venue change to W23a, Walgrave building, Avenue Campus
You are invited to view Adam Ghani’s work and attend his transfer seminar entitled Contemporary Art and the Liminal Space: Refuge for the divine in an empirical world? on June 14th, 2016 in W23a, Walgrave building, Avenue Campus.
Adam will be screening his practical work on loop, projecting several montages from 10am and his seminar will commence at 1pm in the same venue. All are welcome.
Adam’s practice led research aims to explore if the idea of the liminal state (the in-between, the transitional) has ‘divine’ resonance in an atheistic age, through contemporary art practices.
