With slight grammatical alterations, misspellings, and odd word insertions, common expressions are transformed into awkward phrases and nonsensical but semantically loaded poetic statements. These statements are written on cardboard and shown to the public on the streets. Massa Lemu is a visual artist whose multi-disciplinary practice takes the form of painting, drawing, and performance-based installations. Lemu has a Bachelor of Education (Fine Arts) from the University of Malawi and a Master of Arts from the Savannah College of Art and Design (USA). Lemu was a critical studies fellow at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 2010-12. Artist talk and opening reception: November 1, 7:00 p.m.
