MFA AC+D Lecture Series: Matt Olson
February 21, 2019
Matt Olson is the founder of OOIEE (Office Of Interior Establishing Exterior) a trans-disciplinary studio that works on projects related to art, design, architecture, and landscape. The “open practice” model is on the belief that the world makes us as much as we make it and thus, trusting the work that emerges, whether commissioned or self-initiated, is an act of poetic surrender that gives life to something that is easy to care about. Informed by a love of research and an interest in using art history as a material, OOIEE participates in climates of knowledge with an open heart and is committed to intentions of generosity, kindness, and expansiveness. Their work has been shown at the Aspen Art Museum, Etage Projects in Copenhagen, ANNEX at M+B Gallery in Los Angeles and company in Minneapolis. Teaching, especially through workshops, is vital and they've been visiting artist/lecturer at SCI-Arc, Cranbrook, SAIC (School Art Institute Chicago), SCAD (Savannah) and elsewhere.

Join PNCA's MFA Applied Craft + Design Chair Sara Huston, faculty member and mentor Abbie Miller and artist and craftswoman Annica Cuppetelli in conversation as they delve into their individual use of both hand work and machine techniques, and share their research on the various layers of production and information that are intertwined with objects, processes, and materials, as well as their need to evolve, adapt, and establish craft in relationship to making and industry. The event will be at GMA Architects, where Miller’s ongoing exhibition serves as a backdrop for the talk.
