Artist talk at Art Center Sarasota, Gallery 2

The exhibit is currently at the Florida Holocaust Museum until April 29. On Thursday, March 12, 3pm at Art Center Sarasota, Wojtek Sawa, Sarasota based conceptual and multimedia artist will talk about his interactive installation, “The Wall Speaks” and the topic of interactive art and its role in contemporary art. He will also show slides, video clips and photos from the exhibit.
The Wall Speaks Exhibition has attracted considerable media attention including a recent front page article in the Sarasota Herald Tribune. Mr. Sawa, a native of Poland, has exhibited his participatory installations in museums and art venues in Europe and in the U.S. including Art Center Sarasota (Give a Wrinkle, Give a Story). He will address Polish-Jewish relations in the wake of a renaissance of Polish-Jewish dialog with the building of “Polin” the world’s largest museum of Jewish history in Warsaw, the recent Oscar winning film Ida and the Wall Speaks Exhibition itself.
Dedicated to those today, no matter what ethnicity, religion or color whose voices are unheard and who suffer at being treated as less than fully human. -Wojtek Sawa
