For his Enemies Project, Dr. Nelson Guda traveled to conflict zones across the globe to try to bring together people from opposite sides of conflicts. The diverse assortment of art works that came out of the project aimed at exploring the devastating consequences of hatred and loss. The artist and former scientist will talk about how this and other experiences uphold his philosophy that life actions are the purest form of art. He’ll talk about creativity and the creative process through the lens of work that has taken him from the halls of Congress to the slums of Kenya.
