Artists Now! Guest Lecture Series: Cobi Moules
Cobi Moules is a painter whose work focuses on personal narrative relating to his queer and transgender identity. Reflecting on art historical representation of both portraiture and 19th century American landscape painting, his work often disrupts the historical narratives while seeking inclusion and creating a space for personal significance and a queer presence. Cobi received a BFA from San Jose State University in 2004. In 2010 he received an MFA from The School of Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University. His work has been exhibited nationally including The Leslie Lohman Museum, The Minneapolis Institute of Art, the Jepson Center, Crystal Bridges Museum, Ogunquit Museum of American Art and Smack Mellon. Notable awards include the SMFA Traveling Fellowship, Ruth and Harold Chenven Foundation Grant, and the Joan Mitchell MFA Grant. His work is in the collections of the Crystal Bridges Museum, Leslie Lohman Museum, RISD Museum, Cornell Fine Arts Museum and 21c Museum. He has been an artist-in-resident at Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Ucross Foundation, Kimmel Harding Nelson, Vermont Studio Center, Space Gallery, among others. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

All 2021-22 lectures are free virtual events. Series supported in part by the UWM Black and Gold Committee & Differential Tuition funds, Frederick R. Layton Fund, the John Colt Memorial Art Fund, The Queer Curatorial Fund, Print Club, and OBJECT.
