MFA in Visual Studies Presents Alix Pearlstein

New York-based artist Alix Pearlstein will discuss her wide range of work that includes conceptual sculpture, multi-channel installation, and performance-based video during a lecture at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, October 14 in the College’s Swigert Commons.

Pearlstein uses everyday objects, pop cultural artifacts, and art historical references to create narrative meaning through association. Characterized by deadpan humor and a minimalist aesthetic, Pearlstein’s approach is direct and intimate. Her videotapes engage in wry, self-conscious renderings of icons of style, gender, media, and art historical Modernism.

Her works have been included in exhibitions at the Biennale de Lyon, France; Institute of Contemporary Art, London; Kunstverein, Cologne; S.M.A.K., Ghent, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. One-person exhibitions of her work have been seen at The Kitchen, NYC; The MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge MA; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Postmasters Gallery and Artemis Greenberg Van Doren Gallery, New York; and The Grossman Gallery, School of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
