Critical Voices continues with Jennifer Steinkamp
The Museum is pleased to announce the return of the Critical Voices lecture series with a pair of events this spring. Conceived in 2006 and dedicated to the late art critic Clement Greenberg, the series brings nationally and internationally renowned artists, art historians, critics, curators, and theorists to Portland to discuss the ideas that shape contemporary art and institutions worldwide.
On Sunday, May 17, at 2 p.m., the series continues with Jennifer Steinkamp: Diaspore. A pioneering artist in digital media, California-based Jennifer Steinkamp is internationally recognized for her breathtaking installations of projected, computer-generated imagery. Steinkamp juxtaposes the organic and inorganic, the real and invented in room filling works that reflect upon the increasing synthesis of our real and virtual worlds. Advance tickets are available now.
