On Tuesday, May 15th we will be hosting our second Off the MAP event of the year, featuring visual artist Nava Lubelski, who will be presenting a slideshow of her mixed media paintings (currently on display at Turchin Visual Arts Center in Boone) and paper sculptures (currently on display in the SECCA "Paperless" exhibit in Winston-Salem).
The evening's discussion will revolve around the idea of "imperfectionism" and using paper as an analogue representation of digital information.
Lubelski's work has been shown in galleries and museums internationally and was most recently on view at The Shelburne Museum, VT, The Powerhouse Museum, Australia and in galleries in New York, Toronto and LA. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Arts and Design in Manhattan, The Queens Museum of Art in Queens, NY and the Henry Buhl collection. Lubelski has received grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, CUE Art Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the North Carolina Arts Council and the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation.

DATE: Tuesday, May 15
LOCATION: Bobo Gallery at 22 N. Lexington Avenue in downtown Asheville.

OFF THE MAP is a monthly lecture series presented by The Media Arts Project offering insightful talks by visual artists and performers who infuse conceptual approaches to art-making with new technology and traditional media. If you have a specific project or idea related to the media arts that you'd like to present, or if you'd simply like to discuss your artistic approach and practice, please contact us! We would love to host you at a future Off the MAP event, either alone or alongside other artists.
