STUDIO VISITS: Pulled Resources

- Location: Nevins Theater
(9:00 AM - 10:30 AM)
Sponsored By: Foundations, SoAD, Michelle Illuminato

Pulled Resources is the collaborative team of Thomas Sturgill and Dan DeZarn. Originally using the tagline, "…swiftly constructing large, labor intensive projects in relatively short periods of time and with fairly modest budgets." They will share with the audience two current projects, Frack Follow and Community Camaro that take a longer more complex look at the ideas of commodity, resource, environment, and material usage. Both are umbrella pieces that facilitate entirely new bodies of work and directions of investigation and action.

Check out their Pulled Resources Facebook page or their project Community Camaro (http://www.communitycamar... ) to learn more!
Studio Visits is a weekly live lecture and talk show at Alfred University which brings artists and thinkers to the Nevins stage Wednesday mornings at 9 am. First, the guest presents their work in a lecture format and then intermission! When the audience returns, the stage is transformed into a talk show set. The sculpture graduate students (and sometimes others) act as interviewers and bring the guest back to the stage. The interviews use lively games, unusual questions, and surprise call-in guests to give the live audience a new perspective about the artist and their work!
Studio Visits is recorded live and the segments are available on the blog http://austudiovisits.wor... and on Vimeo.

Studio Visits is a project of the Foundations and Sculpture Graduate Programs of the School of Art and Design at Alfred University. It’s headed by professors M. Michelle Illuminato and Brett Hunter.
