Gallery Talk and Book Signing with Maja Ruznic
In celebration of the closing weekend for In the Sliver of the Sun, join artist Maja Ruznic and Curator Nicole Dial-Kay for an intimate conversation in the galleries. A limited number of signed catalogues are available for purchase.
The works in this series depict ghostly figures that arouse a sense of touch through erasure. Simultaneously fading into and emerging from the horizon, they seem to be returning from a long journey. Ruznic’s experiences as a Bosnian war refugee and immigrant prefaced her artistic preoccupations with history, myth, suffering, and trauma. Vivid and darkly humorous, her figures emerge from the canvas with the hazy incandescence of memory. Learn more about the exhibition and the artist here.
