WOMEN & CREATIVITY MONTH EVENT
PRESENTATION: Graffiti, Identity and Space: Culture Jamming Inside and Outside the Gallery
presented at 516 ARTS
516 ARTS announces a special lecture by Dr. Kymberly Pinder, Dean of UNM College of Fine Arts. She says, "Street Art has always struggled with being subversive while still participating in contemporary art discourses. Painters, from studio artists to muralists, have also used graffiti aesthetics in their work. This talk explores how these relationships continue to shape what art is and can be on the street and in the gallery today."
Dean Pinder arrived in 2012 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where for the past 16 years she served as a professor of art history. Before and during her teaching career she worked in the education and curatorial departments in museums and galleries. Dean Pinder graduated with a B.A. from Middlebury College and M.Phil, M.A. and Ph.D from Yale University. She writes, lectures and teaches in the U.S. and abroad on representations of race and religion in American Art.
