The Archaeology of Memory

  • University of Southern Indiana, Rice Library 8600 University Boulevard Evansville, IN, 47712 United States (map)

Join us as we explore the work of Vlad Basarab, current resident artist for New Harmony Clay Project. Basarab brings to the attention of the 21st century public the human need to safe guard the past. He uses unfired clay to reference the fragility of knowledge and of the human condition, while the fired books become a symbol of permanence, a vehicle for transmitting knowledge. Lecture is free and open to public.
