This video is complementary to the original Movements article Painting in Its Multiplicity written by Daniel Fiset.
In this Movements: RELATIONS video, Daniel Fiset, adjunct curator of engagement at the PHI Foundation, reflects around the question: why does painting remain in the center our understanding of visual arts? Artist Rihab Essayh is invited in this episode to discuss about Rajni Perera and Maia Cruz Palileo’s work.
Movements is a tool designed by the PHI Foundation's education team to encourage in-depth explorations of key concepts evoked by the works presented in our exhibition RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting. By highlighting points of conceptual departure, Movements intends to inspire dialogue about the exhibition and encourage visitors to elaborate on the proposed themes through their personal interpretations and reflections. Over time, these concepts are subsequently enriched as they inform new contributions to our evolving conversations about art.
