Join us for an evening of dialogue with participants of our Practice Makes…program, led by interdisciplinary artist and teaching artist Lee Blalock.
In this cutting edge course, a diverse group of artists and makers come together for 5 weeks to explore new ideas, techniques, media, and approaches to art-making inspired by the studio practice of one of the Art Center’s own teaching artists. The final session is an open forum for the artists to share their work, engage in dialogue, and receive feedback from their community of peers.
In her studio, Lee Blalock works with abstractions of the body and questions of post-humanism. As a former STEM educator, and the daughter of a computer operator, she moves freely between science, technology, and fine arts. Her work spans multiple media, including video, photo, sound, programming, electronics, drawing, and performance. In her recent practice, she created a performance piece in conjunction with the exhibition David Bowie Is at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, inspired by Bowie’s perpetual state of persona reinvention.
Participating artists include: Stephen Flemister, Lisa Jenscke-Stephens, Michelle Nordmeyer, Jeannette Tremblay, Rashida Walker, and Paul-David Young.
