The UNLV Department of Art welcomes Candice Lin to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art on Thursday, 12/07/2017 for the Fall Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Candice Lin creates complex and raw artifacts that question the stability of hierarchies, materials, and cultural ideals. She has held one-person exhibitions at Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles, Gasworks, UK, Bétonsalon, France, and the Centro para os Assuntos da Arte e Arquitectura, Portugal. Her work has been seen at group shows in Paris, New York, São Paulo, London, and Dubai. Lin is based in Los Angeles.
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.
