Doris Bittar (California State University, San Marcos)
Art Exhibit - Between the Stripes
Thursday, April 17 /6:30pm / MCC Lounge
Interdisciplinary artist Doris Bittar's paintings, photos, and interactive installations explore the intersection between the decorative arts and history. Marrying seemingly oppositional icons, the paintings probe the concepts of loyalty, identity, nationalism, and power. The installation, Tec Sayings, addresses multiculturalism and heritage, which are continually redefined within the discourse of social anxieties. Bittar has shown in several exhibits in Europe, the Middle East and the United States, and her art is in several public collections. Bittar graduated from the University of California San Diego with a Masters of Fine Arts and participated at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. She is a curator, writer, and teaches at California State University, San Marcos. Exhibit dates: Wednesday, April 9-Friday, June 13.
