Memento

Raff sees ghosts in the everyday

Rubber gloves, frost-encrusted freezers, stark bathroom fixtures, bars of soap, etched desktops—Orit Raff's artistic subjects sound like a cross between local performance venues and Diary of an Insomniac at 2 a.m. This young Israeli-born minimalist captures common objects through video and camera lens in a way that turns their innocent context on edge. Her installations in modern galleries worldwide (photographs and short videos that suggest the cold fragments left behind after life has passed through) quietly haunt the viewer with familiar objects that conjure shadowy memories. For the final lecture in the spring series Tuesday Evenings at the Modern, Raff will discuss Insatiable, her most recent exhibit. Seating begins at 6:30 p.m. for the 7 p.m. lecture at Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell St. Admission is free with advanced ticket. Call 817-738-9215 or visit themodern.org.
Tue., April 25, 6:30 p.m.
