Lectures

Conversations on Art: Tony Feher

5/8/2012 / 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Levitt Auditorium
FREE admission; reservations required*

Des Moines’ art community may remember Tony Feher’s participation in the Art Center’s widely popular 2006 exhibition Aisle 5, which focused on contemporary artists using everyday materials in entirely unexpected ways. A guest again this spring on the occasion of the first survey exhibition of his career, Feher will deliver an illustrated lecture that navigates audiences through the two major aspects of his artistic output: his “studio” work—the sculptures featured in the show—and his architectural installations, including a major public commission for the grounds of the federal district courthouse in Rockford, Illinois, which has been a work of art nine years in the making.

*Seating is limited. Please make your FREE reservations at 515.271.0313 or via e-mail beginning Friday, April 20. Include a name for the reservation, the lecture you wish to attend (Feher), a contact e-mail address or phone number, and the number of seats requested.

Tony Feher is organized by Claudia Schmuckli, Director and Chief Curator, Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston. The exhibition and publication are made possible, in part, by The Cecil Amelia Blaffer von Furstenberg Endowment for Exhibitions and Programs, Houston Endowment Inc., ACME., Anthony Meier Fine Arts, Hiram Butler and Devin Borden, D'Amelio Terras, Jennifer and Jeff Eldredge, The Pace Gallery, Despina Papafote Caldwell and Don Ballard, Julie A. Cohn and John A. Connor, Douglas and Jennifer Bosch, Martha Claire Tompkins, Sissy and Denny Kempner, Mary and Bernard Arocha, Leslie and Brad Bucher, Hiendarsanti Darmodjo, Heidi and David Gerger, Theodore J. Lee and Marc A. Sekula, Judy and Scott Nyquist, and Kenneth and Michelle Zagorski.
