Podcast: Daniel Joseph Martinez MFA Lecture
March 17, 2010
Los Angeles-based artist Daniel Joseph Martinez presented an MFA in Visual Studies lecture at the Museum of Contemporary Craft on March 11, 2010. Fifteen years after his indelible first appearance in the Whitney Biennial in 1993, Martinez continues to create work that unapologetically probes uncomfortable issues of personal and collective identity, seeking out threadbare spots in the fabric of conventional wisdom. A strategic provocateur with a keen intelligence and a wicked sense of humor, he deploys the full range of available media in his practice, having used at various times (and in various combinations) text, image, sculpture, video, and performance to construct his uniquely tough-minded brand of aesthetic inquiry.
