Program Description

Join artist Alex Jovanovich in MAD’s Artist Studio as he builds the objects and props for his newest performance piece, New Day. Commissioned for the series Making a Scene: Objects for Performance, New Day stages a wake for Jovanovich in the tradition of his Serbian Orthodox heritage.

While in the studio, Jovanovich will hand-make some of the funerary objects used in such ceremonies. Through these flowered wreathes, crosses and other items, Jovanovich explores the unique craftsmanship placed on items reserved for the recently departed. During the course of this open studio, visitors may drop in and learn from the artist firsthand how he applies these skills to create a work that raises questions towards the endings we experience in our lives.
