Ebitenyefa Baralaye: “Fragments: Deconstructed Narratives, Forms, and Contexts”

Narratives, objects and spaces are processed and understood through their parts. Whether deconstructing a life, a city, a tool, or a sentence, the fragmented nature of things both proceed and conclude cycles of identity and meaning. Ebitenyefa Baralaye will discuss his work and shifting narratives around the things we build, use, and break. Baralaye’s work explores overlaps in personal, spiritual, and cultural semiotics and considers how material, form, and context together mediate our sense of social and psychological presence.

Ebitenyefa Baralaye is a ceramist, sculptor, and designer. His work explores cultural, spiritual, and material translations in form/objects, text, and symbols interpreted through a diaspora lens and abstracted around the aesthetics of craft and design. Baralaye received a BFA in Ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design and a MFA in Ceramics from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Baralaye was an Emerging Artists Program recipient at the Museum of the African Diaspora in 2017 and recently an AICAD Teaching Fellow at the San Francisco Art Institute.

Lectures are free and open to all.
