Matthew Girson | Visiting Artist Lecture
Matthew Girson is a painter and citizen of the United States. These characteristics are essential to his work that intersects recent histories of painting and politics as we drift further and further away from late modernism, that period that is written into the narrative of art history as a high point in the western tradition. His work has been exhibited in the United States, Europe, and Asia, most recently at Kunsthal, Ghent, Belgium, and Aspect Ratio Projects in Chicago. He is a faculty member in The Art School at DePaul University in Chicago. His cat is called Jelly, short for Fra An-Jelly-co.
Illinois State University Wonsook Kim School of Art is honored to annually host the Visiting Artist Lecture Series. This event series is free and open to the public, and provides our students and community members opportunities to learn from talented artists from all around the globe. The Spring 2022 iteration of the Visiting Artist Series will occur entirely on Zoom. However, no recordings of any lectures will be made available. Contact Art@ilstu.edu for more information.
