ExTV Presents: Monthly Student Artist Spotlight

 

We’d like to introduce the first participant in our new monthly program that highlights the work of a student artist every month and seeks to create a larger conversation and sense of community through featuring their work/practice. This program has three components: an online program of a selection of the artist’s works, a highlighted presence of the artist across ExTV’s social media, and a live conversation/ Q&A with the artist to round off the month.

This Friday at 4:30PM CST we will be hosting an artist talk with Bárbara Baron coinciding with an Open House event over Zoom.

Bárbara Baron is a Brazilian interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago, IL. Her works often utilize obsolete media and explore themes such as memory, time and identity. By experimenting with abstractions of time and space existing within video, the artist creates amorphous narratives through registered memories – either collective or her own – with the intent of preserving herself: ‘becoming archive’ without limits.’
