Los Angeles artist Margaret Honda interrogates the tangible presence of film with the same concentration she gives to more traditional art materials such as paper, cloth, and bronze. Honda’s work has appeared at MOCA, Los Angeles, the Künstlerhaus Bremen in Germany, the Drawing Center, New York, JavaArts in Cambodia, and LACMA. Her films have been screened at film festivals in Germany, Canada, the U.K., and the United States.
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.
