The School of Art, Art History & Design’s Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist & Scholar Lecture Series brings notable artists, scholars and designers to UNL each semester to enhance the education of students.
Underwritten by the Hixson-Lied Endowment with additional support from other sources, the series enriches the culture of the state by providing a way for Nebraskans to interact with luminaries in the fields of art, art history and design. Each visiting artist or scholar spends one to three days on campus to meet with classes, participate in critiques and give demonstrations. Every visiting artist or scholar gives at least one major lecture that is free and open to the public.
The remaining lectures in the series this Fall include:
• Priya Kambli, photography, on Nov. 10 at 5:30 p.m. in Richards Hall Rm. 15. Kambli’s work is rooted in her fascination in the intersection between her parents’ lives in India and her own in the U.S. For Kambli, photography is a means to bridge the gap between two cultures, come to terms with the effects of displacement and to illuminate connections between the past and the present.
• Chris Gustin and Gerit Grimm, ceramics, on Nov. 15 at 5:30 p.m. in Richards Hall Rm. 15. Their visit is sponsored primarily by the UNL Clay Club. Gustin is one of the leading ceramists of his generation with more than 40 solo exhibitions at leading institutions and galleries throughout the world. Grimm is assistant professor of art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
