Artist Talk: Nari Ward and Diana Nawi

Nari Ward: Entanglement

Nari Ward’s work links the everyday and the transformative. Entwined and woven elements feature prominently in both construction and subject: the physical entanglement is a metaphor for the interaction and clash of people across cultures and power hierarchies. Join Barnes Senior Instructor for Art and Aesthetics William Perthes to explore this facet of Ward’s work and its resonance with traditions in modern art.
