All Day Remediation: Works by Azadeh Tajpour based on found footage and archival photos (Multi-Day Event)
Remediation: Works by Azadeh Tajpour based on found footage and archival photos
Exhibit on view: February 4- March 11
Hollister Gallery
The space between us and the other. Azadeh Tajpour is interested in the ways we receive and perceive information, especially the lenses through which we look at “others” exploring the gray area between “us” and “other”. To this end, the artist uses video stills from an American Drone in Afghanistan as a source for drawings, stills from found video of the 2009-10 upheaval in Iran become the basis for paintings, and archival photos are layered on top of each other to highlight their original contradictory captions. Though informed by different locations and events, each of the works uses the combination of the original media and the intervention of the artist to examine the layers of mediation through which we experience what happens “elsewhere”.

12:00 PM - 12:45 PM Wellness - Come as You Are Tai Chi
Tai Chi is a gentle exercise for body and mind.  With its roots in Chinese martial arts and traditional Chinese medicine, Tai Chi uses slow and gentle movements to build your balance, strength, flexibility and focus.  No matter your age or physical condition, you can practice Tai Chi.  Scientific studies support the effectiveness of Tai Chi in improving the lives of people with chronic conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and osteoporosis.  Most of all, Tai Chi is relaxing and fun.  So come as you are, in comfortable clothes, with flat-soled shoes.  You will learn the basic principles of Tai Chi as well as exercises and a short form you will be able to practice on your own.  The course will be taught by faculty member Carolyn Hotchkiss, who has studied Yang and Sun style Tai Chi for five years, and is certified to teach Tai Chi for Arthritis.
