360 Speaker Series: Joseph Havel

Joseph Havel uses common materials in his art – white dress shirts, curtains, tablecloths – to reach out to a broader audience. He deftly addresses the technical and artistic challenge of translating limp fabric into flamboyant bronze sculptures and delicate constructions that quietly suggest movement.

In a process that the artist has described as uncovering “the activity of still objects,” the meaning associated with items is both amplified and changed, a psychological shift that challenges viewers to reassess what they know and what they feel.
