New York, September 29, 2015 – Albanian Institute is please to present our Artists Talk Lecture Series series with Alban Muja in conversation with Colin Huerter.
Born in Mitrovica, Kosovo, Alban Muja is a visual artist and filmmaker working across mediums and dimensions in order to explore and, oftentimes, further obfuscate the social, cultural, political, economic, and quotidian complexities of modern life. Often inspired by unanticipated discoveries in his daily life, and influenced by the transformation processes in the wider surrounding region, he investigates history, customs, and socio-political themes and links them to his position in Kosovo today.
Colin Huerter, a curatorial expert on the emerging international art scene, is a New York-based lecturer, advisor, curator, currently a director of RH Contemporary Art Gallery in Chelsea.
Albanian Institute is a non-profit contemporary art institution located in New York City. We support the arts across disciplines, provide a forum for cultural exchange and dialogue, and create educational opportunities in the U.S. and beyond.
The event takes place at The Players in New York. Founded in 1888, when Edwin Booth, the greatest American actor of his time, purchased a Gothic Revival-style mansion facing Gramercy Park and commissioned to transform it into a certain club “for the promotion of social intercourse between members of the dramatic profession, literature, painting, sculpture and music, and the patrons of the arts.” From Mark Twain to Jimmy Fallon, the tradition of this iconic New York City venue has been alive and well for 125 years.
Date & time: Wednesday, September 30, 2015, 6:00pm.
Event Venue: The Players, 16 Gramercy Park S. New York, NY.
Program includes conversation with the artist, film screening, interactive Q&A segment, followed by a networking reception.
