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.

Join us for coffee and donuts!
