On Beauty, Nurturing and Durational Practice

How does nurturing beauty inform a durational art practice? Visual artist Evan Nabrit will examine the ongoing and meaningful durations implied by a term like ‘nurturing’, as well as what it means to carry something beautiful – such as an art practice –  through sometimes difficult and always ever-changing seasons in life.”

Evan Nabrit (b.1982) is an artist and designer, based in West Philadelphia. His work mostly lampoons American power, typically involves attenuated figure/ground relationships, and is informed by a longstanding collage practice; drawing largely from commercial and fashion photography, cartoons, and history painting.
