Join us in welcoming Lia Lowenthal, UNLV Department of Art, Spring 2018 Artist-in-Residence for an artist's talk on April 12, at 7 pm in the Barrick Museum of Art Auditorium.
Lia Lowenthal (b. 1984) is an artist based in New York City who examines the evolutionary exchanges between design, historical legacies, and their effect on the production of subjectivity. Working in a range of mediums, from public sculpture, commercial business, and found text, her work synthesizes historic or environmental conditions, interlacing them with corollaries in design. Through this process, Lowenthal unpacks how historical legacies surrounding the development of design are interpreted and affect the individual, and resonate beyond their material presence.

She received her MFA at the Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts at Bard College in 2014. In 2018, Lowenthal will present three permanent installations at the Freehand Hotel in New York. In 2017, she held a solo exhibition at Richard Telles Fine Art (Los Angeles); and has recently exhibited at Socrates Sculpture Park (New York), 321 Gallery (New York), Southfirst (New York), Night Gallery (Los Angeles), Swiss Institute (New York), and Art in General (New York). Her work has been written about in Hyperallergic, The New Yorker, and Paletten Magazine. Lowenthal is also the founder and principal of LL, LLC, a conceptually-driven design company.

Parking is free at 7 pm in all metered, staff, and student spots.
