Piero Golia: Solutions to Mortality

Date: January 20, 2018 to April 1, 2018,
Venue: Ulrich Museum of Art-Wichita State University - 1845 N. Fairmount, Wichita

The Event:

The Ulrich Museum is home to more than 600 works by the artist Charles M. Grafly that include drawings on paper, paintings, plaster casts and bronzes. Beginning in the fall of 2016, the museum has invited artists to respond to this collection within the context of the Grafly residency, wherein they will produce works that will help to place Grafly's work in conversation with contemporary art.

Los Angeles-based artist Piero Goli engages with such themes as community, the absurd and the prospect of chance. Much of his work in sculpture, painting and installation is infused with humor and a lyrical romanticism. During his Grafly residency, he will respond to the namessake's architecture, its proximity to both the Grafly Sculpture Garden and the School of Art, Design and Creative Industries, as well as its existence within an academic museum are all elements that will inform the art's creation of a new, site-specific body of work while he considers the reactions to it by those who will be the main viewers of the work: the students of Wichita State University.
