Creative Conversation: In Transit/Liquid Highway by Scherezade Garcia

Join the Arts Initiative as we explore the new, site-specific work In Transit/Liquid Highway by Dominican-born, Brooklyn-based artist Scherezade Garcia. The work reflects on the very difficult experience of migration, and the potent image of water. In an intimate and wide-ranging talk moderated by Wallach Art Gallery Director and Chief Curator, Deborah Cullen, the artist will discuss her process and influences, the relationship between New York and the Dominican Republic, and the strong role of women in modern and contemporary art from the Dominican Republic, among other topics. Garcia, an internationally exhibiting artist whose work is represented in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, among others, is on faculty at Parsons The New School of Design.

Scherezade Garcia’s work for Miller Theatre at Columbia University is co-commissioned and presented in collaboration with The Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery. The transformation of the theatre’s lobby marks the third collaborative project between Columbia University’s two major artistic presenting spaces.
