As the deFINE ART 2014 honoree, Alfredo Jaar will deliver the keynote address Feb. 19 at Trustees Theater. Jaar's large-scale SCAD-commissioned installation, "Shadows," will make its world premiere during deFINE ART.
Other programming highlights include the premiere of new performances by Jonah Bokaer, a performance by Tony Orrico, a lecture by Theaster Gates and an artist panel featuring deFINE ART artists. There will also be receptions, a gallery hop and a SCAD School of Fine Arts student showcase.
"Through exhibitions, performances, lectures and panel discussions, SCAD's deFINE ART program gives SCAD students and our communities unparalleled access to contemporary artists who are at the forefront of what is going on in the art world and who are, in many ways, pioneering new creative platforms," said Laurie Ann Farrell, SCAD executive director of exhibitions.
