2015 UNLV Artist Lecture series.
Letha Wilson was raised in Colorado, received her BFA from Syracuse University, and her MFA from Hunter College in New York City. Letha attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2009, and her artwork has been shown at many venues including Art in General, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Bronx Museum of the Arts, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, International Center for Photography, and the Essl Museum of Contemporary Art (Austria). Letha currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
Letha Wilson’s photo-sculptures “combine landscape photographs and concrete, mixing the two to make literal the idea of photography as a kind of mystical-alchemical-geological enterprise. Ms. Wilson’s focus on the desert and otherworldly sites in the American West also recalls a history of natural phenomena unexplained by science but celebrated in art.”
