Hanes Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Becky Brown
March 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Becky Brown was born in New York City and is the 2016-17 Visiting Resident Artist at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She works between painting, drawing, sculpture and installation using found images, objects and texts. Lately, she has been exploring different relationships between pairs of words in the English language: opposition, synonymy, formal resemblance and hybrid links. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including The Drawing Center, NYC; NARS Foundation, Brooklyn, NY; Fort Gondo Complex for the Arts, St. Louis, MO; Cleopatra’s Berlin, Germany; and Religare Arts Initiative, Delhi, India. She has been an artist-in-residence at Yaddo, Saltonstall Foundation and the Edward Albee Foundation, among others. Her art criticism has been published in Art in America and The Brooklyn Rail. She received her MFA from Hunter College and her BA from Brown University.
An endowment established in 1983 through the generosity of Nancy and Robin Hanes supports the Art Department’s Visiting Artist Series. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures and to offer individual critiques to our M.F.A. students. The Hanes Visiting Artist series greatly enriches both our academic programs and our outreach to the wider community. All lectures are free and open to the public.
