Anthony Discenza: The Imaginary Turn
Interdisciplinary artist Anthony Discenza will present an overview of his past practice, exploring the different ways in which appropriation has manifested in his work over the course of his career, before shifting towards the use of language and ekphrasis. Several recent projects will be discussed that highlight the fictive turn his work has taken in the past few years, while more broadly considering the possibilities and limitations of situating essentially literary gestures within a visual art practice.
This acclaimed weekly lecture series brings in artists, designers, and critical theorists from around the world. All lecture presentations take place 5-6pm in the SJSU Art Lecture Hall (Room 133), unless otherwise indicated. Free and open to the public!
