Rappaport Prize Lecture: Award-winning video artist Suara Welitoff in conversation with video art collector Manuel de Santaren

This event last occurred on April 3, 2013, 6:30 pm.

Join us for a conversation between Cambridge-based video artist Suara Welitoff and video art connoisseur Manuel de Santaren at The Pozen Center at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.  Welitoff is the 2012 recipient of deCordova's prestigious Rappaport Prize, an annual award given to an established contemporary artist with ties to the New England area. The program is free and open to the public.

Altering short sequences of film by slowing the tempo and reducing the color, she creates lyrical and meditative videos that elevate the everyday to the poetic. Set in an infinite loop, Welitoff's videos are at once beautiful and hypnotic.

Created in 2000 and endowed in 2010, the Rappaport Prize is an annual art award presented by deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum through the generosity of the Phyllis and Jerome Lyle Rappaport Foundation. Each prize is given to celebrate the achievement and potential of an artist who has demonstrated significant creativity and vision, and to encourage said artist to continue in a career of innovative art-making.

Limited priority seating will be available for deCordova leadership and members; please RSVP to membership@decordova.org or 781.259.3635.
