Vesna Pavlovic’, Lost Art

The Columbus Museum

Featuring work by: Vesna Pavlović

Columbus State University Visiting Artist and Scholar in Residence Program alumna, Vesna Pavlović (2014) exhibits her installation Lost Art at The Columbus Museum of Art of Georgia, October 7 - November 30, 2017. In this special installation in the museum’s Woodruff Gallery, she will present work from her photographic series based on the exploration of the Museum of Yugoslavia archives.

In her essay for a recent “Lost Art” exhibition at Wake Forest University Hanes Art Gallery, art historian Morna O’Neill writes, “Focusing on sites and events of cultural significance, Pavlović’s works examine the power of photography to conflate individual and national identity. Pavlović draws our attention to the way in which projection can collapse the image and its representation and the dangers inherent in that process: by creating a magic lantern show of Serbia’s history, she points us to the way in which projecting the photographic image, especially one drawn from the archive, can pull the curtain back on the constructed nature of that history.”

Please join us for the Community Slide Show event at the CSU (location), including the performance by the CSU Department of Art students coordinated by Vesna Pavlović on November 30, 5:30 - 7:00 PM. Reception will follow.
