Conversations - A Visual Language: Karima and Joseph
Joseph Fonti (The Painter) and Karima Baadilla (The Potter) explore their ability to effectively engage in visible ‘discussion’.
Using drawing, painting and sculptural techniques, one of the pair will produce a mark or visual idea, to which the other will respond immediately. Both artists are unable to audibly "speak" to one another for the duration of their visual dialogue – instead resolving their “conversation” with finished works.
Opening Night: Tuesday 8 August 5-7pm
Artists Talk: Friday 18 August, 1pm
First Site Gallery is run by RMIT Link Arts and Culture
