"Ritual Reinscriptions: Tracing and Rubbing as Artistic Practice" -
Feb. 7
Tuesday, February 7, 6:30-8pm, Meetinghouse: Center for the Arts

Karen Schiff, a Visiting Artist at ANTS for Spring 2006, will discuss
her recent art projects as rituals of homage, intimacy, and mourning.
The Agnes Martin Obituary Project, in which she traces the shapes of
obituary articles of her favorite artist, recently showed in New York,
and her large rubbings of the Tufts Gallery floor and ceiling
constitutes her recent MFA thesis exhibition. Karen Schiff is in her
final semester of the Master of Fine Arts program at the School of the
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She is from New Haven, Connecticut, and
returned to art school after five years of a professorship in
Interdisciplinary Humanities & Literature. Her artwork is infused with
sensibilities derived from literary study, sitting meditation practice
and Judaism.

The members of the Worship, Theology, and the Arts program are
delighted to have Karen as our visiting artist and invite all to come
and meet her. Karen has a studio in Sturtevant Hall and will be offering
Open Studio Nights as well as other opportunities for artistic
discussion and expression. Light refreshments will be served at 6:30,
followed by lecture at 7pm
