Pratt Announces Fall Lecture Series
"Painting and the Technical Image World"
Joy Garnett on Wednesday, November 28, 2012, 12:45 p.m., Myrtle Hall 4E-3
Joy Garnett is New York-based artist whose paintings are based on news photographs, scientific imagery, and military documents she gathers from the Internet and uses to examine the apocalyptic-sublime at the intersections of media, politics, and culture. Her work is often associated with sampling in new media art and with appropriation art. Garnett's 2003 painting Molotov has drawn international scrutiny to issues of ownership and fair use in appropriation art. Her work has been reproduced in numerous publications including Harper's, Perspecta: The Yale School of Architecture Journal and Cabinet magazine. Since 2005, Garnett has served as arts editor at Cultural Politics, a contemporary culture, politics, and media journal published by Duke University Press. She is the editor of NEWSgrist, which she launched in 2000. Represented by the Winkleman Gallery in New York City, Garnett has shown her work at MoMA P.S.1 and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Academy Award-nominated animator John Dilworth delivered the first talk of the fall series on Wednesday, September 12, 2012. Dilworth, who is perhaps best known as the producer, director, writer, and creator of the animated television series Courage the Cowardly Dog, is the president of Stretch Films, a New York-based design and animation studio, which he founded in 1991.
Internationally-renowned "remix artist" and internet art pioneer Mark Amerika spoke on Wednesday, September 19, 2012. His body of remix artworks includes published cult novels, pioneering works of Internet art, digital video and surround sound museum installations, large-scale video projections in public spaces, live audio-visual/VJ performance, and most recently, a series of feature-length "foreign films" shot with different image-capturing devices in various locations throughout the world.
