The Hunter College Department of Art and Art History is pleased to announce a public lecture by Trevor Paglen as part of the spring 2016 Judith Zabar Visiting Artist Series, Thursday April 7, at 7pm in the Roosevelt House Auditorium. An integral part of Hunter College since 1943, Roosevelt House is located at 47-49 East 65th Street, between Park and Madison Avenues in Manhattan.

Trevor Paglen’s work deliberately blurs lines between science, contemporary art, journalism, and other disciplines to construct unfamiliar, yet meticulously researched ways to see and interpret the world around us. He is the author of five books and numerous articles on subjects including experimental geography, state secrecy, military symbology, photography, and visuality. His most recent book, The Last Pictures, is a meditation on the intersections of deep-time, politics, and art.

Paglen’s visual work has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Tate Modern, London; The Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis; The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the 2008 Taipei Biennial; the 2009 Istanbul Biennial; the 2012 Liverpool Biennial, United Kingdom; and numerous other solo and group exhibitions. He has received grants and awards from the Smithsonian, Art Matters, Artadia, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the LUMA foundation, the Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology, and the Aperture Foundation. Paglen lives and works in New York and Berlin, and holds a BA from U.C. Berkeley, an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a PhD in Geography from U.C. Berkeley.

 

About the Judith Zabar Visiting Artists Program
In November 2007, Hunter College received a generous commitment to establish the Judith Zabar Visiting Artist Program Fund. The Fund has allowed Hunter to bring a series of internationally recognized artists to campus to work directly with students in the MFA program, in master classes, critical seminars, and private tutorials, providing students with the unique opportunity to interact with top practitioners in the field. Zabar Visiting Artists also present public lectures where they discuss their work, engage in conversation with members of Hunter’s faculty, and with Hunter’s broader student community and the general public.

Past Zabar artists have included: Vito Acconci, Janine Antoni, Julie Ault, Robert Barry, Mel Chin, Peter Doig, Charles Gaines, Alfredo Jaar, Joan Jonas, Jeff Koons, Glenn Ligon, Sharon Lockhart, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, Christian Marclay, Kerry James Marshall, Tracey Moffatt, Wangechi Mutu, Gabriel Orozco, Laura Owens, Elizabeth Peyton, Paul Pfeiffer, William Pope L., Walid Ra’ad, Yvonne Rainer, Doris Salcedo, Shahzia Sikander, Fred Tomaselli, Nari Ward, Carrie Mae Weems, and Stanley Whitney.
