UMCA Fall Exhibitions - Displaced: Raida Adon's Strangeness; Artist, Born Elsewhere; Dialogue With a Collection

Friday, September 22, 2023

"Raida Adon’s immersive video Strangeness (2018) invokes experiences of displacement and enduring journeys in search of Home. A rich array of archetypal, historical, and biographical threads inter-weaves riveting, audiovisual fabrics reflecting both human fragility and resilience, agony and hope." Artist, Born Elsewhere features works from the UMCA’s permanent collection by artists who immigrated to the U.S. and have had a lasting impact on American culture. These artists, some of whom arrived as refugees in search of safe haven, carried their ideas and talents with them. Drawings by Susan Yard Harris are installed alongside prints by Edda Renouf from the UMCA’s collection. The exhibition explores the formal and conceptual concerns that parallel both artists’ work, exploring texture, structures, and the very process of making art.

Above quote from Gannit Ankori, PhD, Henry and Lois Foster director and chief curator, Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University. Dialogue with a Collection: Susan Yard Harris and Edda Renouf is part of an ongoing exhibition series where work by local artists is juxtaposed with works from the museum’s works-on-paper collection of more than 3,800 contemporary prints, drawings, and photographs.
