Saskia Jordá is an interdisciplinary artist whose work encompasses site-specific installation, soft sculpture, and drawing.  Using iconic images that repeat as multiples, Saskia explores the idea of skin as a multi-layered artifact.  Saskia Jorda: A Geography of Line uses the vocabulary of mapping and geography to further explore themes of mobility, home, and connection to place, often reflected through fictional landscapes and alternate terrains.

Saskia’s presentation will be followed with the announcements of the 2016 Contemporary Forum Artists Grants Recipients and the Arlene and Morton Scult Contemporary Forum Artist Award Recipient.  Afterwards, walk through the Harnett Gallery and view the remarkable contemporary works created by the 2015 award recipients.
