PAINTER, CRITIC, EDUCATOR PETER HALLEY TO SPEAK AT
THE CLEVELAND INSTITUTE OF ART
Highly acclaimed painter, art critic and educator Peter Halley will present a public lecture at The Cleveland Institute of Art on November 9 at 12:30 p.m. in Aitken Auditorium.
For 25 years, Peter Halley's geometric paintings have engaged in a play of relationships between what he calls ‘prisons’ and ‘cells,’ icons that reflect “the rapidly increasing geometricization of social space in the world in which we all live.”
CIA’s Painting Department Head Julie Langsam said, “Halley is a major figure identified with post-modernist theory and we are so excited that he’s agreed to come visit with us.” In addition to his public lecture, Halley will meet with painting majors individually to evaluate their work.
Halley’s paintings, featuring vibrant colors, contrasting textures and geometric shapes, are in numerous private and public collections including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the DaimlerChrysler Collection, the Tate Modern, the Broad Art Foundation, the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, the Stedlijk Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo.
Currently serving as director of graduate studies in painting and printmaking at the Yale University School of Art, Halley has taught at Columbia University, UCLA, and the School of Visual Arts. His essays have been anthologized in two books of collected writings and in 2001 he received the College Art Association's Frank Jewett Mather
award for distinction in art criticism. In addition to his artistic endeavors, from 1996 to 2005 Peter Halley published index, a magazine of independent culture.
The Institute’s Aitken Auditorium is located in the Gund Building at 11141 East Boulevard. For directions or other information, visit www.cia.edu or call 216-421-7407.
Founded in 1882, The Cleveland Institute of Art is an independent college of art and design committed to leadership and vision in all forms of visual arts education. The Institute makes enduring contributions to education and extends its programs to the public through gallery exhibits, lectures, a continuing education program and The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, an art and independent film program.
