The Savannah College of Art and Design presents the 14th edition of SCAD deFINE ART, the university’s annual program of talks, tours, and exhibitions featuring work by vital voices in contemporary art.
Taking place from February 28 to March 2, this year’s dynamic programming includes a keynote conversation with renowned Cuban-American artist, sculptor, and 2023 SCAD deFINE ART honoree Jorge Pardo; a screening of the feature film REMOTE by Argentine-Israeli video artist Mika Rottenberg; and a keynote lecture by New York-based multidisciplinary artist Rachel Feinstein, among other illuminating gallery talks, panels, and conversations.
These events complement new exhibitions on view at the SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgia, which feature work by Pardo, Rottenberg, Feinstein, and other globally acclaimed artists including Ann Craven, Hassan Hajjaj, Chase Hall, Gyun Hur, Leung Chi Wo + Sara Wong, Josh Sperling, and Ana Bel Lee Washington. The international roster of artists represents countries and regions including Argentina, Cuba, Hong Kong, Israel, Mexico, Morocco, South Korea, the UK, and the US.
SCAD deFINE ART 2023 challenges students, collectors, and lovers of beauty to query the quotidian and question the quixotic. Renowned artist Jorge Pardo’s glowing glass installations, fantasy-inspired painted panoramas, and three-dimensional dioramas, immerse viewers in ethereal elegance. In addition to Pardo’s magnificent work, deFINE ART guests will marvel at the myriad other mediums and masterworks on display throughout SCAD MOA. Join us as we celebrate creators, inspire tomorrow’s innovators, and capture the complexities of contemporary life. SCAD defines art.Paula Wallace, SCAD president and founder
