The Sculpture and Dimensional Studies Department are pleased to support the 8th Annual Meltdown Cast Iron art invitational to be hosted at the National Casting Center at Alfred University on Saturday November 1st.
The event will be open to the public from Noon onwards and will feature a number of visiting artists and Universities, all of whom will be having work cast in iron. We will be running 2 furnaces throughout the course of the day and plan on pouring several thousand pounds of iron.
In addition to the main event there will also be a silent art auction supported by the Alfred Foundry Guild, proceeds from which will be going to support various charitable organizations.
Kira O’Reilly is a UK-based artist. Her practice is both willfully interdisciplinary and entirely undisciplined, and stems from a visual art background. In her work she employs performance, biotechnical practices and writing to consider speculative reconfigurations around the body.
Since graduating from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff in 1998, her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, Australia, China and Mexico. She has presented at conferences and symposia on live art and science, as well as art and technology interfaces.
Cosponsored by: The Division of Sculpture/Glass Area, SOAD, College of Ceramics, and Interdisciplinary Art, CLAS with support from the Dance Program in Performing Arts, CLAS, Alfred University and Grace Exhibition Space, Brooklyn.
