The Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design Galleries at Georgia State University presents “Stewart Ziff: Office Hours.”
Ziff, who recently joined the faculty of the School of Art & Design, will be exhibiting a work that is simultaneously object-based, performative and site specific. Ziff will be “occupying” the gallery during “office hours” from 3 until 8pm, Monday through Thursday and from 12:30 until 6pm on Friday for the entire duration of the show.
Ziff says about the project, “I bring to the gallery the current state of studio work in progress to occupy the space and continue the work in-situ so that, in an ongoing dialog of idea, poetics and discourse, nothing is defined with any certainty of completion, remaining differently in a state of perpetual flux,where the mission of engaged exchange with the audience is one of ‘relational aesthetics’ in an inter relational space of practice oriented action, disengaged from the status of the autonomous object of contemplation.”
Visitors to the gallery will be invited to participate in an open conversation with artist while he pursues the development of a work of installation from inception to conclusion. Ziff will be engaged with a variety of activities in the making of the work that include the building of home made projectors for video, the printing of images in uncommon ways, the construction of roboticactors with legos, and other processes.
