OFF THE MAP: TUESDAY OCTOBER 16
featuring Brandon Pass
Off The MAP presents mixed-media artist and architect Brandon Pass. Pass will present images and discuss how his background in architecture informs recurrent themes and concepts in his work. As an architect, he “recognizes the responsibilities of the built form where environmental, social and contextual factors shape each insertion into a given landscape.” Last summer, Pass designed a collection of paper plates to coincide with the The Southeastern Contemporary Arts Center’s (SECCA) Paperless exhibit.
Says Pass: “Is the plate not a site and the food a construction, an edifice? A dialogue between the two objects emerges, as does a well-sited building grafted into the landscape. As a building engages, transforms and enhances the natural properties of a site, so does the sitting of the food on a plate.”
Brandon Pass is a graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University’s College of Architecture and Urban Studies where he received his Bachelor of Architecture in 1997. Since, he has worked in top-level design firms in Charleston, South Carolina, Chicago, and New York City and holds licenses to practice architecture in Illinois, New York and North Carolina.
WHEN: Tuesday October 16th, doors open at 8:00pm, talk begins at 8:30pm
WHERE: Bobo Gallery and Wine Bar, 22 North Lexington
HOW MUCH: Suggested donation $5 - $10
