MSU/MAM: Art Talks

CO-SPONSORED BY MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY, DEPARTMENT OF ART & DESIGN, MASTER OF FINE ARTS PROGRAM AND THE MONTCLAIR ART MUSEUM.


 

OCTOBER 12
Montclair Art Museum
7:00 PM LEONARDO DREW
Leonardo Drew is best known for his dynamic large-scale sculptural installations. Drew attended Parsons School of Design and received a BFA from Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. His sculptures can be seen as exercises in formalism rooted in the very experience of looking. The work also explores memory by employing a wide range of material to evoke common elements of the human experience and our diverse histories. Drew lives and works in Brooklyn and San Antonio, Texas, and is represented by Sikkema & Jenkins Gallery, located in Chelsea, NYC.


DECEMBER 7
Montclair Art Museum
7:00 PM MARIKO MORI
Mariko Mori is a Japanese video and photographic artist. While studying at Bunka Fashion College in the late 1980s, she worked as a fashion model. This experience strongly influenced her early works, in which she takes control of her role in the image, becoming an exotic, alien creature in everyday scenes. Mori’s continued interest in the fusion of art and technology, Buddhism, and the idea of universal spiritual consciousness draws from ancient rituals and symbols. Mori uses the latest technology and material to create a strikingly beautiful vision for the 21st century.
