Born in 1972, Los Angeles-based artist and filmmaker Edgar Arceneaux received a BFA from the Art Center College of Design and an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts. Arceneaux makes drawings, films, and installations that examine relationships between disparate histories. He has participated in artist residencies at Art Pace in San Antonio; Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine; Banff Center for the Arts in Alberta, Canada; and at the Fachhochschule Aachen, in Aachen, Germany. Solo exhibitions of his work have been presented at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Kitchen, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Studio Museum in Harlem, and the Museum für Gegenwartskunst in Basel, Switzerland. His work was recently included in Marking Time at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Australia; Mutatis, Mutandis, at the Vienna Secession, Vienna, Austria; and the 2008 Whitney Biennial, New York; La Biennale de Montreal 2014; and the 2015 Shanghai Biennale. He has continued to extend his practice beyond the studio with collaborations with the US State Department and the country of Sao Tome, Africa; Beyond Entertainment (BE), a new web and TV series for KCET with artist and filmmaker Kurt Forman; and a recent community-based project in the Edgehill community of Nashville, Tennessee. Until, Until, Until…, Arceneaux’s first live work, was specially commissioned for Performa 15 and won the 2015 Malcolm McLaren award.

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.
