Event description

Description

Join us for a live interview with artist, Mahwish Chishty at The Nightlight on Sunday, October 8 at 2 pm. MUwDV is an artist interview series in which Volk asks artists questions while they create art on his face using everyday makeup. Danny’s face is revealed at the end of the interview, creating a fun and exciting climax to the informative conversation. Local band Comfort Clouds will be playing before each live Akron interview.

Mahwish is Assitant Professor in Foundations at Kent State University. Initially trained as a miniature painter from the National College of Arts, Lahore, Pakistan, Mahwish Chishty has aggressively combined new media and conceptual work with her traditional practice. Ms. Chishty has exhibited her work nationally and internationally at venues like the Imperial War Museum London, University of Technology (UTS Gallery) Sydney, Australia; Boghossian Foundation– Villa Empain. Brussels; Utah Museum of Contemporary Art; Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MOCADA), Brooklyn, NY; University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI and Gandhara Art Gallery, Karachi, Pakistan among others. By camouflaging modern war machines with folk imagery, Ms. Chishty is shedding light on the complexity of acculturation, politics and power.

Made-Up with Danny Volk is a Knight Arts project. Thank you to the Knight Foundation and the Akron Community Foundation for your support!

Tickets may be reserved as seating is limited. All interviews are FREE and open to the public.
