Visiting artists, writers, curators, art historians and critics 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.
Working in representational painting, Scott Listfield's narratives feature a lone astronaut figure, finding their way among landscape filled with traces of pop cultural reference. Humorous yet poignant, Listfield's paintings simultaneously revel in measures of nostalgia and apocalyptic anxiety. Recent solo exhibitions include those at Thinkspace Projects, Los Angeles; Station 16, Montreal; StolenSpace Gallery, London; and Rotofugi, Chicago.
The Art Talks Lecture Series is sponsored by the College of Art and Design MFA in Visual Arts program and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
