Anne Wagner: Everyday People
Monday, March 30, 5:30 pm
Everyday People demonstrates that much of what seems valuable in recent art takes as its subject the question of what globalization means for our lives as social beings, our experiences as bodies and selves. Professor Wagner shows how artists today offer their own distinctive responses, not least through their reinvention of the linked categories of portraiture and the everyday. Anne Wagner is Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art at the University of California, Berkeley.

Conversations with Artists: Joel Ross
Wednesday, April 1, 5:30 pm
Joel Ross portrays the American cultural and political landscape in sculptures, drawings, photographs, and videos. The road and its mythic presence in the country’s psyche have been at the heart of his work for many years. His current project is a series of outdoor sculptures that take the form of roadside signs, which are photographed and then left at their installation sites.
