Visiting Artist: Llyn Foulkes

September 9th is significant. The inaugural lecture in 2013’s Fall Visiting Artist Lecture Series is due to start in the Barrick auditorium at 7 p.m. and the speaker will be Llyn Foulkes, creator of the multi-horned Machine, depicter of dead Mickey Mouses, “eclectic” — according to his website — his “eclectic oeuvre includes intriguing meditations on the nature of photographic images, a light romance with nostalgic Americana, savage portraits reminiscent of Francis Bacon and scathing commentaries on the insidious nature of commercial pop culture.” He occupied the Central Pavilion at the 2011 Venice Biennale and earlier this year he was a presence at Documenta 13.

The complete list of artists and dates is available online at the Lecture Series’ blog.
