Found Objects in Sculpture 11:30 am – 12:10 pm
Christian Conrad, will host a discussion on found objects in art
One of the hallmarks of modern sculpture is the incorporation of objects from our everyday world as components of the art. Today these objects are used for reasons ranging from their aesthetic appeal to their use as cultural symbols. The exploration of how found objects are being used often is paramount to understanding modern sculpture.
Artist Talk, 12:20 am – 1:00 pm
I will lecture briefly about the nature of collectives/collaboration and forfeiting absolute control over an artwork. I will connect this to my own work as both artist and curator as well as the other members' pieces. The talk will touch on malleability as it relates to art practice, using found objects, instructions, and trust in both people and materials." - Eli Blasko
