The UNLV Department of Art welcomes Marcos Ramirez Erre to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art on Thursday, 10/19/2017 at 7pm for the Fall Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Marcos Ramírez Erre invokes the power of borders to mark areas of conflict, understanding, and reconciliation. He has developed multidisciplinary site-specific works for museums and biennial exhibitions across the globe, with projects in the Whitney Biennial, the Moscow Biennial, InSITE, and the Centro Reina Sofia Museum in Spain. Erre is a fellow of Mexico’s Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte. Born and raised in Tijuana, Mexico, he is based in the United States.
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.
