The Life and Art of Mel Chin with Christian Conrad

Mel Chin (b.1951)


Mel Chin began his career in Houston, and his art reflects his multicultural background. Chin works in a variety of materials and methods, often dealing with contemporary issues involving environment and race. Additionally, Chin creates large installation pieces that reference classics of literature such as Dante’s Inferno and Chinese and Greek philosophy.  Internationally acclaimed, Chin has received major awards, including multiple Biennale appearances, retrospectives, and the US Endowment of the Arts. Join us as we examine the work of this celebrated contemporary artist.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

 This event is free to the public.

LHUCA Literary Series

LHUCA Literary Series

We hope you will join us for the first LHUCA Literary Series of the semester, featuring visiting writer Diana Khoi Nguyen. Texas Tech students - undergraduate Hali Cardenas and MA student William Brown - will also read from their work. The evening will be a celebration and discussion of literature as a force for social change, an effort toward building up language and encouraging writers and non-writers alike to rally for a world full of generosity and connection. As George Orwell famously put it, “One ought to recognize that present political chaos is connected with the decay of language.”

Diana Khoi Nguyen’s debut collection, Ghost Of (Omnidawn, 2018), was selected by Terrance Hayes for the Omnidawn Open Contest. She is a poet and multimedia artist whose work has appeared in Poetry, American Poetry Review, Boston Review, and PEN America, among others. In addition to winning the 92Y "Discovery" / Boston Review Poetry Contest, she has been shortlisted for the National Book Award, and has received awards and scholarships from the Academy of American Poets, Bread Loaf Writers Conference, Sewanee Writers’ Conference, and Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center. Currently, she lives in Denver where she is a PhD candidate in creative writing and teaches in the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver. www.dianakhoinguyen.com

William Brown is in the final semester of his master's degree in poetry at Texas Tech and plans to earn an MFA and PhD afterward. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Copper Nickel, Crab Creek Review, McNeese Review, and elsewhere.

Hali Salome Cardenas is a West Texas native. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s in creative writing at Texas Tech University. She is the recipient of the 2018 Stephan Ross Huffman Poetry Award. She spends much of her time reading with her toddler and their cat.

The Life and Art of Susan Rothenberg and Joan Mitchell with Christian Conrad

Susan Rothenberg and Joan Mitchell are two Abstract Expressionist artists whose work extends the vocabulary of painting. Joan Mitchell created paintings using raw marks to produce canvases that were highly energetic and colorful. Considered one of the key figures of modern American painting, Mitchell’s work has been widely collected by major museums. Susan Rothenberg works with the legacy of Abstract Expressionism, but she moved the subject matter toward recognizable forms within her paintings. Famous for representations of horses within her art, Rothenberg continues to create work with identifiable forms blending with more abstract painting.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

The Life and Art of Yinka Shonibare with Christian Conrad

An artist with a Nigerian/British background, Yinka Shonibare creates artwork that explores cultural identity along with concept of globalization. Working with a disability--the paralysis of half his body--Shonibare uses assistants to help create his work. Shonibare’s sculptures are largely based on brightly colored, African-inspired fabrics. In addition, the artist uses historic British paintings in reinterpretations that follow a more contemporary narrative. Join us as we examine the work of this groundbreaking artist and discuss how cultural identity affects contemporary art.

The Life and Art of Shepard Fairey/Margaret Kilgallen/Barry McGee with Christian Conrad

Shepard Fairey /Margaret Kilgallen / Barry McGee

Emerging in the early 1990s were three artists who found their roots in the graffiti scene that was developing in the United States. Shepard Fairey, whose most famous piece remains the Barack Obama "Hope" poster, utilizes his understanding of graphics to create poster-like art that conveys a political message. Margret Kilgallen had a tragic short life, but her work continues to endure and influence. Kilgallen, along with her husband Barry McGe,e worked in the San Francisco area and became cornerstones of the Bay Area Mission School of Art, creating work that blends aspects of street art with concepts of installation. McGee continues to work into the present day, creating art that is shown internationally.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.
