Ruby Fridays

RUBY FRIDAYS is a new series of casual art talks at the Rubenstein Arts Center, free lunch included! Speakers include Duke faculty and students who have produced work during a Rubenstein Arts Center arts project residency, as well as visiting artists and local NC creatives. Learn about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more.

Hijacked is a moving image work created in 2017 by Duke Faculty filmmaker Shambhavi Kaul. It is concerned with airplane space and has a "noise music" soundtrack that evokes the soundscape inside an airplane. For its month-long installation in the Ruby, Kaul is presenting Hijacked as a 15-minute loop, and she's experimenting with new modes for both the picture and sound components to create a more immersive experience of "airplane space."

This Ruby Friday event is your opportunity to join her for the experience, with a little lunch on the side.
