Leigh-Ann Pahapill to Install Site-Specific Work at CFAM this January

We are fortunate to have Leigh-Ann Pahapill return to campus this month to install a site-specific work in The Cornell Fine Arts Museum.  An excerpt from the CFAM website is below:

Likewise, as technical experts, but not (at all) by way of culture / an installation by Leigh-Ann Pahapill  (through April 8)
This on-site installation by Canadian artist Leigh-Ann Pahapill will be created by the artist over a two week period.  The artist's description of the work describes "a kind of platform enclosed by a balustrade in front of, in the distance, in the forground, in the background, in place of a guide or direction set up to indicate the proper road to a place, in due time, in recent time, in the future, in the past, in parallel to the tiers of boxes of which the gallery consists, in a moment, inside and into, in many respects the screen separating the stage from the auditorium, in relation to a piece of cloth or similar material suspended by the top so as to admit of being withdrawn sideways" (Leigh-Ann Pahapill).
