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 on a first-come, first-served basis.

Join us at this week’s Lunch on Fridays talk to hear from visiting artist Kevin Appel, whose paintings explore the relationship between physical space, architecture and the painted image. Using photographs as a ground to build his painting, he applies layers of paint that act as screens, compressing the perceived space.

Appel lives and works in Los Angeles. He received his BFA from Parsons School of Design in New York and his MFA from University of California, Los Angeles. He is a professor of art and department chair of art in painting and graduate studies at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts at University of California, Irvine.

Appel’s work was recently on view at the Museum of Modern Art, NY (2016) and has been included in exhibitions across the country. His work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN, among others.
