Virtual Program: An Inside Look at Currents 118: Elias Sime
Tuesday, September 22 | 6–7 pm
With Hannah Klemm, associate curator, and Molly Moog, research assistant, modern and contemporary art
Contemporary Art Society members are invited to closely examine Currents 118: Elias Sime. Ethiopian artist Elias Sime creates large-scale modular artworks from discarded technological material such as electrical wires, circuit boards, motherboards, and computer keys. Sime breaks, weaves, collages, and burns these materials to create abstract images that suggest nature and urban views. For Sime, the materials and his artworks tell the story of globalization and our interconnected world. His practice transforms formerly mundane, functional items into creative and thought-provoking works of art.
Registration is appreciated. RSVP before September 21 to 314.655.5390 or email email@example.com. Online instructions will be provided at the time of registration.
Currents 118: Elias Sime is supported by the Dana Brown Endowed Fund for Education and Community.
Collectors Circle programs at the Saint Louis Art Museum are presented by the Betsy and Thomas Patterson Foundation.
