Sharon Lockhart Lecture 3/31
Thursday March 31st @ 7:00 pm Mills College, Fine Arts Annex 106
Los Angeles-based artist Sharon Lockhart creates films and photographs that are at once rigorously formal and deeply humanistic, meticulously observing the details of everyday life while also exploring the limits and intersections between the two mediums. Her work has been exhibited at major museums worldwide, including the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Kunsthalle Zürich, and the Vienna Secession. Her project Lunch Break, 2008, is currently the subject of a solo show at Gio Marconi in Milan and will travel to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in October 2011. Sharon teaches undergraduate photography and is a member of the MFA Core Faculty at the University of Southern California Roski School of Fine Arts in Los Angeles.
