Where George Gund Building, Aitken Auditorium
Spend a lunch hour learning about the latest in art and design during these Friday lectures. Each lecture features a variety of artists and designers from around the world, including CIA faculty and visiting artists.
Cedric Christie was born in London in 1962, and he lives and works in London. His work explores a broad range of cultural and art historical references, often using humor and irony as subtle vehicles of communication. He incorporates and manipulates everyday objects such as snooker balls, scaffolding, and even cars, creating sculptures that are meticulously and skillfully made. They become both a critical appraisal of modernism as well as a playful exploration of form and meaning. Christie's work betrays a fascination with the fluid line between art and object, manifesting the mercurial spirit inherent in embracing indistinction. Cedric has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally, and has curated a number of large-scale group exhibitions, including the group show Something I don't do.
This event is free and open to the public. Pizza and beverages will be provided.
