Texas Sculpture Group Artist Talks & Bill FitzGibbons Performance
Thursday, September 11, 2014
6 - 8 PM
Right Side / Wrong Side embodies Bill FitzGibbon’s approach to visual art as social sculpture. His piece is a sculptural response to the geo-political environment constructed by humans that defies the common human spirit. This border architecture is being imposed on two cultures that are more similar than they are different. Which side is right, which is wrong? As a sculptural statement the piece imposes itself in the gallery- coaxing the viewer to experience the gravity of the political statement created by our government.
The performance will be preceded by short artist talks from Texas Sculpture Group members with work on view in the exhibition Texas Sculpture Group 2014: A Panoramic View.
