Allen After Hours / Reading Paintings: Recognizing Stories in Thought-forms, Symbols, and Emotional States

Thursday, March 7, 2024 at 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Allen After Hours / Reading Paintings: Recognizing Stories in Thought-forms, Symbols, and Emotional States

Thursday, March 7, 2024 at 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Elena Pakhoutova, Senior Curator of Himalayan Art at The Rubin Museum of Art in New York will discuss recent works by Mongolian artist Uuriintuya Dagvasambuu. The artist’s conceptually rich visual vocabulary seamlessly integrates traditional and contemporary pictorial elements to express relevant stories to which anyone can relate. Given the universal themes found in her art, international audiences can understand her visual narratives. They require no translation, but including the artist’s voice helps to interpret some of her encoded visions which will be explored during the presentation.

Access Statement:
This event will be held in a wheelchair- and rolling walker-accessible building. The lecture space is wheelchair accessible, with moveable seating, and near wheelchair-accessible restrooms. Restrooms are gender-specific; visitors are invited to use the restroom of their preference. Listening devices will be available for use during the presentation, but ASL interpretation will not be offered. Most talks will be recorded and available with closed captions on the museum’s Vimeo page after the event. Please email access questions to Jill Greenwood, jgreenwo@oberlin.edu.

Uuriintuya Dagvasambuu (Mongolian, b. 1979), Pandemic Diptych, 2021. Acrylic on canvas. Oberlin Friends of Art Fund, 2022.19A-B.
