River Gallery will host the first solo show in Southeast, Mich. for the Bosnian born and internationally recognized printmaker Endi Poskovic from March 30-May 11.
The gallery will host a reception for the artist on March 30 from 5-8 p.m.
Using representations of familiar imagery, Endi’s work proposes a wide range of eventualities, according to information about his work. He creates through text and image interpretations that demonstrate simultaneously the real and fictitious, the rational and absurd.
Educated in Yugoslavia, Norway and the US, Poskovic explores the adventure of migration and it’s risks and/or the magnificence of nature and its dangers. His partly circumstantial and partly self-imposed exile, does not allow him to work within the comforting boundaries of the culture in which he first learned to observe, connect and interpret the world.
He is a recipient of the Guggenheim, Rockefeller, Pollack-Krasner, Carmargo and McDowell Fellowships.
His work can be found at Harvard University Fogg Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Shanghi Art Museum. Poskovic is a professor of Art and Design at the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art and Design.
