Diana Al-Hadid

Diana Al-Hadid, Phantom Limb

Diana Al-Hadid opens Brown’s gallery season with a really strong exhibit of sculptures and drawings. The Syrian-born, Ohio-raised artist takes her inspiration from the Renaissance, but distorts and melts her sculptures, suggesting that western historical narratives are eroding. (Phantom Limb refers to a feeling that an amputated limb is still there, but in this show’s case it’s heads that are mostly missing.) In Mortal Repose, the show’s most impressive piece, features a headless bronze figure that’s been reduced to a puddly mess. Al-Hadid will be in town for a lecture on the 16th.
