Visiting Artist Lecture: Joanna Powell

- Location: Room C, Binns-Merrill Hall
(4:30 PM - 6:30 PM)
Sponsored by: The Alfred Clay Collective

The Alfred Clay Collective welcomes spring visiting artist Joanna Powell.

Artist Statement:
My current work focuses on the question of beauty. What I find beautiful tends to be awkward and irregular and at times the opposite of what is considered the social norm of beauty. This challenge of beauty comes from growing up in a culture where my identity of what it is to be a woman has been shaped by a male lens. My work allows me a place of asylum, a fictional culture where everything and everyone is ok to exist. Through the arrangement of objects I set up a situation or narrative where the viewer can forget about an objects function and call attention to its possibilities as pure matter with its own intentions. I want to encourage questions about what is happening with the objects and the narrative being peculiar and unclear welcomes this conversation. The paintings and objects have become married into installations, re-contextualizing them to function as three-dimensional paintings. My work lives in this twilight zone between painting and sculpture. I am continually searching for this sensation of something coming into focus. The objects I create are colloquialisms of my own making that reference ancient and current civilization. I believe an object can anchor the values of a culture acting as an artifact of its time. I question beauty with the artifacts I create.

Lucas Blalock – Artist Lecture

- Location: Nevins Theater
(4:30 PM - 6:30 PM)
Sponsored by: Division of Drawing, Painting, and Photography

Lucas Blalock’s work engages the ways that falseness or evident mechanics in photographs can bring both the picture and the pictured into sharper focus. He pursues this through a variety of overlapping strategies (often involving Photoshop) that in some way alienate the “natural” view generally associated with photographic pictures. Blalock’s work employs this expanded notion of the photograph to consider a world that is ever more inhabited by the plasticities of the virtual.

Blalock’s pictures have been included in recent exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the the Walker Art Center, the Hammer Museum, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He has made a number of artist books including Towards a Warm Math (Hassla, 2011), Windows Mirrors Tabletops (Morel, 2013), Inside the White Cub (Peradam, 2014) and SPBH Subscription Series Vol. IIV (Self Publish Be Happy, 2014). Blalock is also active as a writer and has published in a number of artist’s books and periodicals including Aperture, Foam, Mousse, and Objectiv. Blalock was born in 1978 in Asheville, North Carolina and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.
