Master Class: Omer Fast
A new educational initiative launching this year as part of our annual Testing Ground for Art and Education, Testing Ground: Master Class invites leading international artists to share their expertise with a small group of emerging artists from around the country over a five day intensive, led by artist Doug Fishbone.
Join us each evening for a public lecture by the artists.
Tonight: Omer Fast
Omer Fast is an Israeli, Berlin-based artist whose layered film installations examine modes of storytelling and reconstructions of the past. Taking key historic and contemporary events as his subject matter, Fast explores the ways memory is recounted, narratives retold and events represented. His dramatized films, characterized by high production values, manipulate the recorded image and speech and employ the discrepancy between the two as a space to blur the distinction between reality and representation, truth and fiction.
