The UNLV department of art welcomes Anna Wittenberg to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, for the Fall Going To Artist Lecture Series.
Wittenberg is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles working mostly in video, sculpture, and setup. She received her BA in media studies at Pitzer College in 2008 and an MFA in visual art at the University of California, Riverside in 2017. She utilizes setup and efficiency in association with video to explore the corporeal dimension of experience. Her work has significantly concentrated on questions around performativity and interactivity and their cultural and biological significance in today’s extremely moderated landscape. A lot of her tasks utilize video and sound to press, push away, or distance, and pull, draw-in, or coax, in an effort to question modern and historic cultural mores. She has actually held solo exhibitions at BozoMag, Los Angeles and took part in group shows at NOS France, the Contemporary Museum of Modern Art in Austin, Texas, Roger’s Workplace, Human being Resources, Figures on a Landscape, and SOSM in Los Angeles.
The UNLV Visiting Artist Lecture Series includes a diverse variety of some of the most compelling artists and thinkers working in the art world today. This essential program brings both established and emerging artists to go to the campus and discuss their work in public lectures and to provide individual critiques to our BFA and MFA trainees. This program has established itself as an important resource for UNLV students and the general public alike. The main objective of the UNLV Artist Lecture Series is to educate, influence, and promote a greater understanding and appreciation of modern art through visual discussions and discourse.
This occasion is totally free and open to the public.
Recommended voluntary contribution:
$ 5 adults;
$2 kid and senior.
