Michael Queenland - Points of Convergence

  • Monday, 13 March 2017 - 6:30pm
Studio 126

In this talk, focusing primarily on ongoing work begun here in Rome of collecting city detritus and transforming it through various strategies of ordering, patterning, and flattening, Michael Queenland will discuss the urban context as a source of inspiration and discovery; as a space where the social, temporal and aesthetic converge accidentally, momentarily, and coincidentally from multiple points of view.

Michael Queenland is the Joseph H. Hazen Rome Prize Fellow in Visual Arts at the American Academy in Rome.

The shoptalk will be held in English.
