Artist Lecture with Jumaadi

Friday, October 17, 2014
Room 309, Simons Center for the Arts, 54 St. Philip St.

The Halsey Institute will present an artist talk by exhibiting artist Jumaadi on Friday, October 17 at 5:30pm in Room 309 of the Simons Center for the Arts located at 54 St. Philip Street on the College of Charleston campus

The exhibition forgive me not to miss you not will feature new works by Jumaadi, created during his two-month residency. Jumaadi is an Indonesian artist, currently dividing his time between Australia and the Netherlands. Jumaadi is an Indonesian artist, currently dividing his time between Australia and the Netherlands. He works in multiple media with equal fluency – painting, drawing, sculpture, installations, and shadow puppets. He is our fall 2014 International Artist-in-Residence and will be creating a new body of work during his two-month residency. He will also be working on a special project with the students of the Academic Magnet High School here in Charleston to create an evening of shadow-puppet theater to be presented at their school.

Jumaadi’s paintings and drawings have an otherworldly feeling about them, as if the figures and landscapes are from a barely remembered dream. Many of his figures seem to be carrying burdens of some sort, a metaphor for the human condition. Jumaadi’s imagination is full of poetic wanderings that manifest through his various media.  

Jumaadi has exhibited extensively in Australia, Indonesia, Asia, and Europe, but this will be his first exhibition in the United States. He was recently selected to participate in the Moscow Biennale in Russia.

His residency and exhibition are supported in part by the Quattlebaum Endowement and the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
