Opening Friday, September 7th, from 6PM - 8PM
On view through Saturday, September 15th
Join us at the gallery for an artist walk-through with Alison Ruttan and Orkideh Torabi! Alison and Orkideh will discuss their work – much of it brand new – on view in Weight of a World.
Free and open to the public.
This event is part of the programming for Weight of a World, Weinberg/Newton Gallery’s current exhibition. Conceived of as a tool, Weight of a World presents artworks that elicit lessons to be learned – and to be taught – from global conflict, local lore, and cultural identity. Presented in partnership with Facing History and Ourselves, Weight of a World comprises sculptures, paintings, film, and supplementary programming that pivot upon two vast, inextricable categories: history and identity. The works on view recognize the roles of individuals within the long arc of history: how we are formed by our contexts, and how we may impact what comes next.
Artists: Alison Ruttan, Deborah Stratman, and Orkideh Torabi, with a program by Rebecca Keller.
