Buffalo Arts Studio is proud to present a special summer 2018 project titled Connections. The project provides an opportunity to meaningfully link artists with communities to inform the creation of new work, with special emphasis placed on engaging underserved audiences. Connections is two intertwined exhibitions that work to bring us together to counter the differences that too often separate us. Muhammad Z. Zaman is a Buffalo-based, urban artist, specializing in calligraphy. His exhibition Lux uses language and text as cultural signifier, layering English, Bengali, and Arabic into richly-textured canvases. Liz Lessner's exhibition, Interstitial Castings, uses sculpture to capture the negative space between two people engaged in the intimate actions of teaching, caring, and sharing. Each object is a record of three interconnections: client, service provider, and artist.
Both of these artists aim to impact the community by spurring dialogue, spotlighting often overlooked segments of Buffalo’s population, and reframing conceptions of work, care, and community by presenting them in an innovative and joyful context.
