Description

The Department of Art and the Barrick Museum welcome artist Daniel Bozhkov as a guest speaker of the 2016 UNLV Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

A multidisciplinary absurdist, performance artist, and fresco painter, New York artist Daniel Bozhkov creates acts of resistance against socially-mandated homogenization. His work has appeared in P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and Sculpture Center, New York, the Santa Monica Museum of Art, Ikon Gallery, UK, and numerous international biennials and triennials. Bozhkov has taught at Yale and at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine.

The UNLV Visiting Artist Lecture Series features a diverse array of some of the most compelling artists and thinkers working in the art world today. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures and to offer individual critiques to our BFA and MFA students. This program has established itself as an invaluable resource for UNLV students and the public alike. The primary mission of the Visiting Artists Lecture Series is to educate, inspire and foster a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through visual presentations and discourse.

Lectures take place every Thursday evening starting at 7 p.m. in the Barrick Museum Auditorium.
