Wednesday, October 30, 4:30-6:00p.m. Artist Lecture: Wafaa Bilal
Iraqi-born artist Wafaa Bilal, an Assistant Arts Professor at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, is known internationally for his online performative and interactive works provoking dialogue about international politics and internal dynamics. For his current project, the 3rdi, Bilal had a camera surgically implanted on the back of his head to spontaneously transmit images to the web 24 hours a day – a statement on surveillance, the mundane and the things we leave behind. Bilal spent a month in a Chicago gallery with a paintball gun that people could shoot at him over the internet. Bilal’s work is constantly informed by the experience of fleeing his homeland and existing simultaneously in two worlds – his home in the “comfort zone” of the U.S. and his consciousness of the “conflict zone” in Iraq.

Monday, November 11, 4:30-6:00p.m. 
Artist Lecture: Rachel Lachowicz
 
Los Angeles-based artist Rachel Lachowicz’s professional history covers over 30 years of conceptual art making. Rachel is known for turning her witty eye on the masculine-centric world of Modernism and for making radical incursions into the canon of art history by reconfiguring famous works. The term "Lipstick Feminist," grew out of an 80's-90's philosophy but more specifically the art world came to use that term to refer to the work of Rachel Lachowicz, and less than a handful of others. She explores the relationship of identity and the politics of mark making, predominately through the use of cosmetics. Lachowicz makes both discreet objects and large-scale installations.
