Visiting Artist Lecture: Marissa Lee Benedict
The School of Art Visiting Artist Program Presents an Artist Lecture by Marissa Lee Benedict.
Marissa Lee Benedict is a sculptor, researcher and writer who has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as Hauser & Wirth Somerset (U.K.), the DePaul Art Museum (Chicago, IL) and threewalls (Chicago, IL). Motivated by a deep curiosity about the function and dysfunction of social, ecologic and industrial systems, her practice is one of active observation; of engagement; of instigation; of experimentation. She received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA inSculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), and is currently an Instructor in Sculpture and Fiber at the University of Oregon. Beginning in 2014, she and artist David Rueter have begun a collaborative practice that has produced a number of video installations and curatorial projects, including the video installations Dark Fiber (on view September 2016 at the Illinois State University Galleries) and I Can Only See Shadows (on exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago, IL from July to October 2016).
All School of Art Visiting Artist Program lectures are free and open to the public.
