On Thursday, April 7, the Wriston building opened its galleries, and artists Lois Bielefeld and Nirmal Raja visited Lawrence to present their collection of works. Check out the Wriston Galleries to explore and learn more about their works!

The work “What is recorded | What is remembered” is a collection of different forms of art by Bielefeld and Raja. There are photos, video, audio, and an installation, including a timeline fabric installation (photo one) that is used in the videos and photos. Bielefeld’s and Raja’s (photo two, left and right respectively) artist statement states: “The fabric then became a prop for twelve performance-based photographs and two separate video works that bring attention to our fraught relationship to history.”

The collection also includes photos, such as the one titled “Downtown – Sari 18,” observed by student Kiara Didier (photo three). “Downtown – Sari 18” is from the collection “Reaching through 5 ½ yards, 8497 miles.” This collection explores the concept of identity and makes a political statement.

Various community members observed the artwork after the artist talk (photo four), including a video (photo five). The video is part of the three channel video that featured 19 women.

- Alex Freeman (@alexkfreeman), Incoming Co-Editor-in-Chief “Crush those cubes up! ”
- Taylor Hughes, Incoming Co-Editor-in-Chief “Sonic ice blows them all out of the water.”
