(Zoran Mojsilov Exhibit - November 8, 2018 - May 25, 2019)

Fargo, ND – Originally from Serbia (former Yugoslavia), Zoran Mojsilov is a Minnesota-based sculptor boldly working in stone, steel and wood. Resembling large, surreal machines with hand-carved wheels, cogs and gears, the artist’s Time Machine series forms the centerpiece of his current solo exhibition at Plains Art Museum. In connection with this exhibition, Plains Art Museum announces three programs including Zoran and his partner Ilene, who is a freelance art educator at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Institute of Art, and Can Can Wonderland (Minneapolis, MN):

On Thursday, January 31st from 6-7pm, the Museum will present a Conversation with the Artist. This adult program will include Associate Curator Tasha Kubesh, who led the organization of the exhibition, and will highlight Zoran’s various influences and career-long concern for humankind, nature, love, and war. This program is free and open to the public and no registration is necessary.

The following day, on Friday, February 1st from 6-8pm, Ilene will lead an Adult + Child Workshop: Assemblage Time Machines. This is your opportunity to create your own sculpture after gaining inspiration from the exhibition, and its layers of time, cultures and symbols. This program is $15 for Museum Members, $19 for Non-Members, and registration is required at plainsart.org.

Another opportunity for family art making will be presented the following day on Saturday, February 2nd, from 1-4pm during Plains Art Museum’s popular Kid Quest family event. Get a chance to meet Zoran and see him at work carving a sculpture – then, create your own time capsule and mixed media sculpture. Kid Quest events are free thanks to support from Xcel Energy and Kiwanis Club of Fargo. Pre-registration is required at plainsart.org.
