‘The Architect’s Garden’ is an Art Lover’s Wonderland

From September 9 to December 17, 2011, UT’s Visual Arts Center will present Mika Tajima: The Architect’s Garden. For this new work, specially designed for the VAC’s Vaulted Gallery, Tajima will construct sculptures with a framework of scaffolding holding canvas panels printed with a kaleidoscopic collage of images from modernist designs, classic French gardens, Richard Linklater’s indie film Slacker , and film and theater sets. More panels will project images from past performances and images drawn from her conversations with people from the Austin community. These conversations will form the foundation for a series of public programs to take place during the run of the installation.

In other words, this mixed media exhibition is everything the Creative Alliance loves (art, performance, architectures, video, sculpture, painting, et. al.) in one convenient location.
