When: Thu., Sept. 21, 7:30-9 p.m. 2017
Meet and greet Surel's Place Artist-in-Residence Hasan Elahi. The internationally renowned artist and University of Maryland associate professor of art is planning to create a body of photographic and video work on the relationship between landscape and surveillance during his residency. He intends to use Boise as a base to recreate historic American landscape paintings from the 19th century, using modern day consumer technologies that have grown out of military developments. He will only be using paintings created before Idaho became a state, as the work will also question what the genre of landscape means today in a political context.
