Amie Siegel at Brandeis

  • Wasserman Cinematheque, Sachar Center 415 South Street Waltham, MA, 02453 United States (map)

A talk by artist AMIE SIEGEL, followed by a conversation with KIM CONATY, Curator at the Rose Art Museum.

The artist will discuss her three-part installation Provenance, a touchstone in her work, with its accumulative, cinematic representation of economic and political cycles. A slow reveal over multiple parts, Provenance strips back the layers of patrimony that influence the cultural value of objects, in this instance the modernist chairs and furniture that Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret designed for the Indian city of Chandigarh.
