Annette Cords - Weaving and Physics - What Inspires Artists Series Event
FREE - The Corner Room door opens at 6:00 p.m.
Please join us for another event in the series What Inspires Artists with a discussion between multimedia artist Annette Cords and senior art librarian Arezoo Moseni.
What do weaving and physics have in common?
In her work Annette Cords draws on diverse sources and combines unlikely materials and ideas. Created for Art in the Corner Room, Art Wall on Third and Art in the Windows exhibition series her site-specific installations, Sideways, Tandem Mass and Nested at Mid-Manhattan Library, are inspired by physical concepts of time and space that she explores via woven tapestries and wire mesh. During this event these and other inspirations behind Cords' work are discussed.
From the radiating colors of a meadow to fleeting vibrations of a spindle artists are influenced by many things including architecture, art, cinema, literature, science, and other fascinating human efforts and inventions. The series What Inspires Artists, initiated by Arezoo Moseni and held in conjunction with Art in The Corner Room exhibition series at Mid-Manhattan Library, focuses on what inspires artists.
