The University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design, in conjunction with the Nebula Project and the Henry Art Gallery, are pleased to announce the Winter Quarter 2015 artist lecture series. This annual series is organized to accompany the course Art 361/595, Critical Issues in Contemporary Art Practice, taught by guest lecturer Eric Fredericksen.
This year, the course looks at artist-made structures—physical and otherwise— and attempts by artists to create their own structures for the presentation and dissemination of their work, including artist-led institutions, publishing initiatives, curatorial projects, collectives, collaborations, and education and residency programs. The talks will be supplemented by projects realized at the Jacob Lawrence Gallery in the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design.
