Goss-Michael Foundation presents Jwan Yosef: "Come September" opening reception
The Goss-Michael Foundation will present "Come September," a newly curated selection of Jwan Yosef’s work that focuses on material and our relationship to them. Working with holy mediums such as oil paint and unholy material such as acrylic glass, the combination becomes a substitute for portraiture.
Coming from a contradicting and somehow distant background of Syria and brought up in Sweden, along with a mixture of different religions and cultures, the works become extremely self-reflective and personal to Yosef. At the same time, his art also provides an indirect comment on a wider perception of our immediate being and surrounding cultural and political movements.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through November 16.
