MFA in Visual Studies Presents Martin Kersels

October 05, 2009

The MFA in Visual Studies program presents Los-Angeles-based artist Martin Kersels in a free, public lecture at 6:30 p.m. Thursday October 8, part of PNCA’s Graduate Visiting Artists Lecture Series.

Los Angeles-based artist Martin Kersels has long used art as a forum for wrestling with the limitations and possibilities of being a fully embodied, sentient and emotional being.

He employs a range of media, from sculpture and photography to video and performance. He has worked on staff at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the UCLA Art Department, and currently serves as a faculty member and co-director of the art program at the California Institute of the Arts. 

Kersel’s work has been featured in exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, the J. Paul Getty Museum and ACME in Los Angeles, Deitch Projects in New York, and the Galerie Georges-Phillipe and Nathalie Vallois in Paris. His pieces are in the public collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art 
and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, La Reina Sofia in Madrid, and the Musée National d’Art Moderne Centre Pompidou in Paris.
