Featuring drawings by Jagdeep Raina, In Young Yeo, and Adam Liam Rose, the artists will speak about their unique drawing practices which include perpetually simulated surfaces, ancient traditions of Kashmir embroidery, and and drawings which reference the relationship between Israeli and American safety infrastructures.
The presentations will be followed with a conversation between the artists on topics as wide ranging as cybernetic logic, questions about Asian female fantasy roles, history of corporate involvement in India's agricultural system and lost traditional Arts and Crafts traditions.
Jagdeep Raina is an artist and emerging writer based in Guelph, Ontario where he teaches at the School of Fine Art and Music at the University of Guelph. Raina holds an MFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and has been an artist in residence at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Madison, Maine; the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts; the Camden Arts Centre/Slade School of Fine Art in London; and the Miriam Dawood School of Art and Design in Lahore, Pakistan. Raina is currently a 2021 Paul Mellon Fellow at Yale University.
Adam Liam Rose (b. 1990) is an interdisciplinary artist working across sculpture, drawing, video and installation. Born in Jerusalem and raised mostly in the United States, his works investigate the aesthetic systems of power embedded within architecture. Rose draws inspiration from political realities in Israel/Palestine and the United States, often looking to structures of separation and control whose intentions either manifest outright, or slither beneath the surface. His works navigate ideas around artifact, “history,” and collective memory, uncovering how these distinct categories coalesce into feelings of place or “placeness.” Utilizing and subverting utilitarian materials including paper, textiles, and plywood, he creates a space for dialogue between the permanent and the ephemeral, the physical body, and the history embedded in objects.
InYoung Yeo is an artist based in Seoul. Her work expands from artistic materialization of text, drawing, and installation works to curatorial projects with interdisciplinary approaches in topics of Gender, A.I. and Urbanization as her main area of research. Exploring various forms of manifestation in patterns, numbers and dimensions based on logical structures of the human 'mind' and coincidences in the multi-dimensional time and space, her questions start from researching differing micro-narratives with a focus on the cyclical ‘relation’. Yeo has put together and participated in various projects, exhibitions, residencies, talks, and workshops in Korea, Germany, Southeast Asia, among others.
