A Convo with Jiseon Lee Isbara, Provost of OTIS College of Art and Design
March 17, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
On Wednesday, March 17th from 6:30 to 8:00 PM, Textile Arts | Los Angeles invites you to join them for Displaced, a conversation with the new provost of OTIS College of Art and Design, artist, and curator Jiseon Lee Isbara.
Jiseon Lee Isbara will speak about the inquiries addressed in her work and the use of visual languages and processes developed over time to communicate her concepts and emotions. Her work mirrors her life and its complexities of a displaced person in two countries: conversant in the language and culture of both places, but not considered a full-fledged member of either one. Through her work, she embodies two cultures, times and identities colliding and merging together.
$10 members; $20 public
PracticeLAB is a series of talks exploring the ideas, issues, and inspiration that inform a robust creative practice. Textile Arts | Los Angeles invites artists, authors, architects, and creatives to present content that addresses the nature of a practice, as well as educational sessions that offer an opportunity to practice. We look forward to meeting more of LA’s creative community with these engaging sessions.
