Multimedia: Alix Pearlstein MFA VS Lecture
December 17, 2009
Alix Pearlstein uses everyday objects, pop cultural artifacts, and art historical references to create narrative meaning through association. Characterized by deadpan humor and a minimalist aesthetic, Pearlstein’s approach is direct and intimate. Her videotapes engage in wry, self-conscious renderings of icons of style, gender, media, and art historical Modernism.
Her works have been included in exhibitions at the Biennale de Lyon, France; Institute of Contemporary Art, London; Kunstverein, Cologne; S.M.A.K., Ghent, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Solo exhibitions of her work have been featured at The Kitchen, NYC; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Postmasters Gallery and Artemis Greenberg Van Doren Gallery, New York; and The Grossman Gallery, School of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
This MFA Visual Studies Visiting Artist Lecture took place at Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland, Oregon. Introduction by Arnold Kemp, MFA Visual Studies Chair. Pearlstein’s visit was made possible through the MFA Visual Studies Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series, the Caldera Residency and Cyan/PDX.
