Art School: Painting

A Program for Walker Art Center Members

Part of Art School: What the %#@! Is Contemporary Art?, Painter Painter

Painting: Painter Painter

Using the current exhibition Painter Painter as a destination, this session takes a look at material/compositional and intellectual/conceptual trends in painting over the past 20 years. A guided visit to the galleries follows.

Art School demystifies contemporary art by putting it into context—culturally, historically, and personally. Through short, succinct sessions, you’ll come to understand what the fuss is all about—even feel like a connoisseur yourself. This program for Walker members is copresented by the University of Minnesota Departments of Art and Art History.

Featured Presenters

Scholar Lauren DeLand is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Art History at the University of Minnesota, and a graduate instructor at the University of Minnesota. Her work on contemporary and modern art intersects with feminist and queer theory, and considers the politics of vision and visibility. Her essays and criticism have appeared in the journals Criticism and Review, and in the forum Quodlibetica.

Artist Emily Lynch is a painter whose work is derived from mathematical sequences, number bases, and trigonometric functions. She first translates mathematical concepts into visual representations, then creates musical scores and performances that read from the paintings. She received a BA in Mathematics from Luther College in 2006, and BFA from the University of Minnesota in 2012. Lynch is a Minnesota State Arts Board Mentorship Grant recipient, and represented the University of Minnesota in the 2011 Undergraduate Student Showcase Show.
