The MFA in Applied Craft + Design and Visual Studies programs are excited to welcome Josh Faught to present a public lecture on his work and research as part of the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies Lecture Series.
Josh Faught’s practice combines textiles, pop cultural detritus, and archival materials to address the relationships between language, community, and constructions of identity. Recent solo museum exhibitions include a site-specific installation at the Neptune Society Columbarium as part of the SFMoMA SECA Art Award Exhibition (2013); the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (2013); and the Seattle Art Museum in conjunction with the Betty Bowen Award (2009). Solo exhibitions also include Koppe Astner Gallery, Glasgow (2019 and 2014); and Lisa Cooley, New York (2010, 2012, and 2014).

In 2017, Faught also produced a site-specific work for St. Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle, commissioned by Western Bridge. Faught is the recipient of the 2009 Seattle Art Museum Betty Bowen Award, the 2011 Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation grant, the 2012 San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art Award (SECA), the 2016 Artadia Award, and the 2016 Eureka Award from the Fleishhacker Foundation.

Join us on Friday, October 21st at 6:30 for a lecture by Jeanne Medina Le. Jeanne is an LA-based artist who uses textile, the body, and installation to perform artistic research. She considers her production a continuous process which attempts to learn and decolonize the fixed and fluid spaces of her filipina-american identity. She is interested in the language, meaning, and knowledge embodied in textiles which are subject to time. Jeanne is Assistant Professor in 3D Media / Fiber Program Head at California State University Long Beach.
This lecture is a collaboration with Portland Textile Month
