A+P+I Lecture: Zarouhie Abdalian 

When: Wed., March 18, 7 p.m. 2015
Price: Free
In 2013, after receiving SFMOMA’s SECA Art Award for emerging artists, Zarouhie Abdalian had her first solo museum show as part of BAM/PFA’s Matrix series. The central piece was a brass alarm bell continuously ringing inside of a glass vacuum reminiscent of a large ice cube, rendering the bell silent. That fall, she also installed bells in and around Frank Ogawa Plaza that rang in randomized rhythms at intervals throughout the day to induce confusion and consideration around the ways that bells regulate social behavior in public spaces. Now, the thoughtful, innovative artist is performing a residency at Mills College (5000 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland) as part of its A+P+I (art, process, and ideas) program along with equally interesting artists Weston Teruya and Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon. The program will begin its artist lecture series next Wednesday with a talk by Abdalian. The artist will likely share insights about sound that you’ve never come close to considering. Return for Teruya’s lecture on April 8, and Kiyomi Gordon’s on April 22, as well as a studio open house on May 2.
