Robert Raphael: Symposium
Closed
This event is now closed.
Description:
Robert Raphael's ceramic-based work draws on the complex history of decorative art, a tradition that intersects and runs parallel to the history of art. Rather than interpreting ornamentation as superficial, Raphael believes that the strength of decoration lies in its seductive nature and the complex meanings that often result when surface, mass, pattern, and cultural history conflate. For the installation at The Bronx Museum of the Arts Raphael's work focuses on classical ornamentation and its prevalence from historical time through to contemporary society.
