Art Alert: Townhouse West hosts a discussion with renowned artist Huda Lutfi

Ahram Online , Tuesday 2 Jun 2015

Following the opening of her exhibition Magnetic Bodies, Lutfi will discuss stories of pressures and ‘subconscious presumptions’

On Friday 5 June, artist and art historian Huda Lutfi will lead a discussion in Townhouse West, a newly launched art space where her latest exhibition is currently on display.

The discussion will tackle issues of pressures and ‘subconscious presumptions’.

In the venue’s first exhibition, renowned artist Hoda Lutfi explores how human bodies oscillate between acquiring and losing meaning.

Between paintings, sculpture and installations, Lutfi uses repetition with the desired effect of desensitising the viewer’s perception and turning the redundant shapes into mere objects.

For around 20 years, Lutfi has presented several exhibitions locally and internationally.

Magnetic Bodies is an extension of her socially and politically charged pieces, which she will talk about during the discussion.

The conversation will conducted in both English and Arabic.
