MFA Summer Lecture Series
June 25, 12 p.m.
Connelly Auditorium, Terra Building 8th floor
Often regarded as an experientialist, Lee Walton’s work takes many forms – from drawings on paper, game/system-based structures, video and web-based performances to public projects, theatrical orchestrations and more. He holds an MFA in visual arts from the California College of the Arts and is an assistant professor of art at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
Want to learn more about the first speaker in this summer’s lecture series? UArts Libraries’ databases are a great way to access information about contemporary artists. You can access reviews of works of art and exhibits, interviews with artists and curators, and art reproductions.
One of our newer subscriptions, Rhizome.org, is an online archive of new media art. Sign up through their website while on campus for full access anywhere.
RED BALL makes use of the internet as a medium for the exchange of ideas in a virtual space which is, at its purest, conceptual. Marking the conflict between what is real — a city, its architecture, its structure and culture — and what is experienced as concept, Lee Walton’s placing of a ball becomes an event of acute understanding.
