Thursday, November 10 | 7 p.m.
Berman Museum of Art presents “Berman CONVERSATIONS: Artist Talk with Nadja Frank and Cari Freno” in conjunction with the exhibition A Stratigraphic Fiction.
The Conversations Series is the Berman’s signature public program, pairing contemporary artists with Ursinus professors for a dynamic exchange of interests and ideas.
Nadja Frank creates works that purposefully blend aspects of painting and sculpture, playing with perceptions of scale to diminish the distinction between microcosmic and macrocosmic worlds. Using basic objects and materials such as concrete, pigment, water, and salt, her work lyrically examines the impact of man seen in the geologic record. Nadja Frank was born in Lohr am Main, Germany, and now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
Cari Freno uses video, drawing, and sculpture to explore the landscape where internal and external worlds intersect. Her works have been presented at the Berman Museum of Art, at High Tide Gallery, Little Berlin, Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, and the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia, at the Visual Arts Center in Richmond, VA, and at Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, SC. Freno lives and works in Philadelphia, and teaches drawing and sculpture at Ursinus College.
A Stratigraphic Fiction continues through Sunday, March 19, 2017. Don’t miss it!
