Contemporary Perspectives Lecture: Laylah Ali

Starts:
6:00 pm on Thursday, November 4, 2010
Location:
CFA Concert Hall, 855 Commonwealth Avenue
Best known for her androgynous comic figures, Laylah Ali uses everyday objects such as sneakers, band-aids and dodge balls, and juxtaposes them with such violent subject matter as political resistance and betrayal. Her meticulously-worked paintings of gouache on paper result in scenes that are controlled, yet saturated with tension. Part of the BU School of Visual Arts' annual Contemporary Perspectives Lecture Series. Lecture is free and open to the public. Call 617.353.3371 for information.
