Bread Diaries
Art | Sci

The UCLA Art | Sci Center is hosting “Collective Bread Diaries: A Taste of Protest,” an interactive art project in which participants will have the opportunity to draw and share their personal visual representations of bread to eventually form an array of visual diaries, each specific to its creator. The individual representations will be reproduced by a machine.

The exhibit opens at 5 p.m. on April 5 in the UCLA California Nanosystems Institute’s Art | Sci Center Gallery on the fifth floor. The opening will feature a discussion with UCLA Art | Sci Center artist-in-residence and Fulbright scholar Haytham Nawar. It will remain on display through the end of the month and viewable by appointment.

Nawar is an artist, designer, and researcher who currently lives and works in Cairo. He is assistant professor and director of the graphic design program, department of the arts at the American University in Cairo. He is the founder and director of the Cairotronica, Cairo Electronic, and New Media Arts Festival.
