Carmon Colangelo: Visiting Artist’s Lecture
Monday, 05 November, 2012 @ 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM | Cost:Free
Carmon Colangelo is dean of the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. Colangelo is a widely exhibited artist known for large mixed-media prints that combine digital and traditional processes.
His 'iM here' exhibit is a collection of work from two recent projects -- 'Eyedeas' (2010-11) and OLandO (2012) -- that play on location and our existence as it is mapped by images, social experiences and ephemeral media. Colangelo's work muses about cultural narratives, urban life, human ecologies, globalism, social networking, transcendence and recording everyday ideas.
This body of work is composed of intaglio printmaking, letterpress, water-based media, digital printing and drawing.
Colangelo's art has been featured in 30 solo shows and more than 100 group exhibitions worldwide, and has been collected by many of the nation's leading museums.
This program is co-sponsored by the EIU Department of Art and the Tarble Arts Center.
