Slide Lecture with Glen Kaufman
Saturday, August 20 at 5:00 p.m (refreshements at 4:30 pm) at The Honolulu Museum of Art School
After many years of creating individual works each with a specific focus, Kaufman became more concerned with a conceptual use of space: Installation Art. Although generally not-site specific, these works include multiple elements that are meant to convey a message, a feeling, an atmosphere. Much of the work presented in his lecture has been inspired by his many years of exposure to Japanese culture, including dance. Kaufman says, “I have been fortunate in developing a collaboration with a Japanese Butoh dancer who performs in the gallery space adding an additional sensory impact to the work.” In addition to his own work Kaufman will include images of installations by Japanese artists.
