Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Jesse McLean
October 4 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
2016 Nohl Fellow (Established) Jesse McLean’s creative work and research are motivated by a deep curiosity regarding human behavior and relationships, especially with and arising through media and technology. A primary focus of all her work is a consideration of both the power and the failure of the media to bring people together, and the ways emotions are lived in an age of mediated experience.
McLean’s lecture will include an overview of her collagist video art practice, with particular attention to recent projects. These are inspired by the fraught relationships people have with computers, a technology we both rely on and resent.
The Department of Art & Design proudly presents the 11th season of Artists Now!, a Wednesday evening lecture series designed for a broad audience with an interest in contemporary visual art. It presents a diverse group of artists working across traditional, hybrid and emergent disciplines. Join these nationally and inter- nationally recognized practitioners as they explore and expand the boundaries of creative visual practice today.
All lectures take place on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm in the Arts Center Lecture Hall on the UWM campus. FREE and open to the public!
