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. This event is free and open to the public. Pizza and beverages will be provided.
This Friday we welcome artist and Sculpture + Expanded Media Co-Chair Sarah Paul to the Lunch On Fridays stage for a special LIVE multimedia performance event. The performance/artist talk titled, "you asked me to explain so i did and now you're sorry" is an artist's confession of the ecstasy and peril of blurring art and life.
Born on the edge of the Berkshire Mountains in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, Sarah Paul is now an artist based in Cleveland, Ohio. She received her BS in Mathematics from the University at Albany and MFA in Visual Studies from the University at Buffalo, before swimming west along the southern coast of Lake Erie. After stopping to rest, mesmerized by the flaming smokestacks, she wandered inland and fell in love and lust with the smokestacks, the city, and the lake. Sarah is making work that embraces and celebrates this lush rusty belt. Recent and forthcoming exhibitions and performances include the Front Yard at Burchfield Penney Art Center, SPACES Gallery, Sculpture Center Cleveland, MOCA Cleveland, Albright-Knox Gallery, UB Art Gallery, and the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art. In addition, her video work has been screened around the U.S. and abroad. In 2013, Sarah was generously supported by a Creative Workforce Fellowship granted from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture in Cleveland, Ohio. Sarah is presently an associate professor and co-chair of Sculpture + Expanded Media at the Cleveland Institute of Art.
