Artist Lecture: Rachel Sussman

2/2/2017 / 6:30pm

“Creative churn: the practice of following compelling threads, unsure of where they might lead” is the term Rachel Sussman applies to her art making approach. Join Sussman for a talk that traverses a few of her fascinating projects—from a decade-long endeavor of photographing 2000-year-old organisms, to a collaborative handwritten timeline of the universe starting before the Big Bang and spanning to 100 billion years into the future.

Her project featured in Alchemy: Transformations in Gold is a site-specific work that taps into the Japanese tradition of Kintsukuroi, in which ceramics are repaired with gold. Join us to learn which element of the Art Center will be repaired with gold!
