Leslie Hewitt, a New York City-based artist, will give a lecture on Thursday, October 27, 2016 from 6-8pm in Music Building 101. Hewitt received her M.F.A from Yale University and has held residencies at The Studio Museum in Harlem, at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and in The Houston Core Program at The Museum of Fine Arts. She has been featured in several solo shows including Leslie Hewitt: Sudden Glare of the Sun (2012) at The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.
Working with photography, sculpture, and site-specific installations, Leslie Hewitt addresses fluid notions of time. Her work oscillates between the illusionary potential of photography and the physical weight of sculpture. In her photographed arrangements, she isolates personal ephemera and the residue of mass culture to consider the fragile nature of quotidian life.
This event is organized by the School of Art + Art History Visiting Artist Committee and sponsored by the Marston Visiting Artists Fund and Friends of the School of Art and Art History.
The Music Building is located near the Carillon and University Auditorium at 435 Newell Drive. Parking is available on Inner Road.
This lecture is a part of the Fall 2016 Visiting Artists Lecture Series. All six lectures are free and open to the public. The lectures offer the community at large an important opportunity for dialogue about contemporary art and culture in relation to national and international trends.
