Lenka Clayton: Visiting Artist Lecture
Tuesday, March 14 at 6:30 PM
Visual Arts Complex, Auditorium - 1B20
1085 18th Street, Boulder, CO 80309
Lenka Clayton is an interdisciplinary artist whose work considers, exaggerates, and alters the accepted rules of everyday life, extending the familiar into the realms of the poetic and absurd. In previous works, she has searched for and photographed every person mentioned by name in a German newspaper; worked with artists who identify as blind to recreate Brancusi’s Sculpture for the Blind from a spoken description, and reconstituted a lost museum from a sketch found in an archive. Clayton is the founder of An Artist Residency in Motherhood, a self-directed, open-source artist residency program that takes place inside the homes and lives of artists who are also parents. There are currently over 1,000 artists in residence in 62 countries. Recent exhibitions include Fruit and Other Things (2019) at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Object Temporarily Removed (2017) at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, Apollo’s Muse (2019) at The Metropolitan Museum of Art NY and The Grand Illusion, at the Lyon Biennial, France (2020). In 2017 the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum commissioned a major new work by Clayton and collaborator Jon Rubin, entitled A talking parrot, a high school drama class, a Punjabi TV show, the oldest song in the world, a museum artwork, and a congregation’s call to action circle through New York.
Field School: Information Session
Today!! Tuesday, March 14th
12:00 pm Seminar Room
Also on March 21st (same time, same place)
The Field School is an intensive 3-week summer program that puts students in touch with various rural and remote landscapes while focusing on site and context-based approaches to art creation.
The Field School is designed as an experiential course, meaning that students learn through the experience and process of understanding place by making new artwork on-site while living and working in the field. Students create and discuss various approaches to art creation while exploring many mediums, including writing, photography, sculpture, drawing, sound recording, and land-based art.
Post-studio encourages art practices such as dialogical and context-based actions surrounding topics like nature and process, phenomenology, borderlands, pastoralism, wayfaring, walking, pilgrimages, ecologies, colonialism, ownership and exploitation, conservation, cultural representation, settler-scapes, reconciliation, idealized landscapes, dualities, centers, and peripheries.
