LEWISTON — On Friday evening, Aug. 26, 7 p.m. in Callahan Hall at the Lewiston Public Library, Maine installation artist Amy Stacey Curtis will be discussing her upcoming work, “MEMORY,” which will be opening in the Bates Mill Complex on Sept.17 of this year. Her library presentation is being co-sponsored by LA Arts and Art Walk Lewiston Auburn.

In 1998, Curtis began what would be an 18-year commitment to interactive installation art: nine solo-biennial exhibits from 2000 to 2016. In the end, Curtis will have installed 81 large-in-scope, interactive works throughout nine mill buildings in eight Maine towns. Each solo-biennial exhibit is a 22-month process and each explores a different theme.

“MEMORY,” Curtis’s ninth and final solo biennial will run from Sept. 17 to Oct. 28 and will include nine large works installed throughout the 30,000 square feet of Lewiston’s Bates Mill Complex. The Aug. 26 LPL talk will take place during Art Walk Lewiston Auburn which runs from 5 to 8 p.m. that evening.
