Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Plug-in Studio
May 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Plug-In Studio (Steve Ciampaglia + Kerry Richardson) is a socially engaged new media art collective that collaborates with adults and youth in diverse Chicago communities to make videogames, interactive kinetic sculpture, and other art with technology. Their projects incorporate programming, engineering, and design in a critical context of radical co-creation.
The Plug-In Studio was named the 2015 Fellows by A Blade of Grass Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art and have presented their work at Stanford University, MIT, and Columbia University.
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!
