killaarsSept. 12, Fransje Killaars, 7:30pm in A+A 109 (sponsored by VADSCO)
For nearly 20 years, Killaars' brightly colored fabrics and hand woven textiles alter existing architectural environments and suggest the existence of imagined spaces. Killaars' works feature color pairings inspired by India and color field painting of the 1960s. She creates vivid installations that are often in stark contrast to the galleries and conservative public institutions they inhabit. Co-sponsored by Ready for the World.

osorioOct. 10, Pepon Osorio, 7:30pm in A+A 109 (sponsored by VADSCO)
A master at installation art, Osorio is best known for his baroque, polemically charged environments. His use of mass-produced objects coupled with his socio-anthropological savvy presents the spectator with the opportunity to engage in multiple readings of his work. Ultimately, they speak not only to the Latino community but to society in general. Since 2006 he has been a Professor of Art at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. Co-sponsored by Ready for the World.
