Contemporary Perspectives Lecture: Phoebe Washburn
October 19, 2011
An American installation artist based in New York, Phoebe Washburn composes large-scale works with cast-off materials such as cardboard boxes, wood, and newspaper, in a painstaking process that produces what she calls "spontaneous architecture" and "spectacles of environments." The raw beauty of her work has made Washburn one of the country's most closely-watched artists, with shows in the Deutsche Guggenheim, Whitney Biennial 2008, and Zach Feuer Gallery. Presented by the Boston University College of Fine Arts. Free and open to the public. Call 617-353-3371 for information.
