THE MONDAY ARTIST AT NOON LECTURE SERIES: WARREN SEELIG, MATERIALITY AND MEANING
Monday, Sept. 14, noon, Falvey Hall, Brown Center, 1301 W. Mount Royal Ave.
Against the backdrop of new technology and the virtual world, the idea that meaning may be derived from "materiality" is more relevant now than ever in the history of art making, Warren Seelig, a fiber and mixed media artist, argues. In this context, Seelig will discuss the work of eight artists working with diverse materials as well as provide an overview of his own work. Since the 1970s, Seelig has insistently defined and redefined qualities that are unique to textile through his studio practice, teaching, writing and curatorial projects. He will teach Constructed Line: Drawing Through Process at MICA during the fall semester. Also, he is the subject of a retrospective, Warren Seelig: Textile per se, which takes place Friday, Dec. 4, 2009-Sunday, March 14, 2010 at MICA.
