Join us in welcoming Lia Lowenthal, UNLV Department of Art, Spring 2018 Artist-in-Residence for an artist’s talk on April 12, at 7 pm in the Barrick Museum of Art Auditorium. Lia Lowenthal (b. 1984) is an artist based in New York City who examines the evolutionary exchanges between design, historical legacies, and their effect on the production of subjectivity. Working in a range of mediums, from public sculpture, commercial business, and found text, her work synthesizes historic or environmental conditions, interlacing them with corollaries in design. Through this process, Lowenthal unpacks how historical legacies surrounding the development of design are interpreted and affect the individual, and resonate beyond their material presence.
