Art Talks Lecture Series | January 2018 Residency
Visiting artists, writers, art historians and critics, and curators discuss and present their work and ideas during a public lecture series sponsored by the MFA Visual Arts program during each residency.
These events are free and open to the public and are accessible by MBTA redline train to Porter square. The Art Talks Lecture Series is sponsored by the College of Art and Design MFA in Visual Arts program and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Exploring the seduction, magic, and desperation of our hyper-capitalist, globally-connected reality, Mika Rottenberg’s elaborate visual narratives draw on cinematic and sculptural traditions to forge a new language––one that uses cause and effect structures to explore labor and globalization, economy and production of value, and how our own affective relationships are increasingly monetized. Solo exhibitions of her work include those at the Palais de Tokyo, Rose Art Museum at Brandeis, Bass Museum of Art, and Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York.
The MFA in Visual Arts Art Talk series at Lesley University College of Art and Design is supported, in part, by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
