The Department of Art and the Barrick Museum welcome artist Emily Mast as a guest speaker of the 2016 UNLV Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Los Angeles artist Emily Mast integrates theater, installation, sculpture, writing, and video into collaborative acts of impermanence. Her work has appeared at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Project Space in New York, MUKHA in Antwerp, the Harbourfront Center in Toronto, and the Mona Bismarck American Center in Paris. In Los Angeles she has shown at LACMA, REDCAT, and the Hammer Museum.
The UNLV Visiting Artists 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.
