Lincoln, Neb.--Visiting artist Iva Gueorguieva will present the next lecture of the Hixson-Lied Visiting Artists & Scholars Lecture Series on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 5:30 p.m. in Richards Hall Rm. 15 on the University of Nebraska–Lincoln city campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Gueorguieva is a versatile artist who explores the different and yet interwoven terrains of painting and sculpture. For her the act of creating is a way of stitching, juxtaposing, overlapping, reiterating, remembering and erasing multiple phrases, stories, memories and impressions, while maintaining a clear connection to the history of art and a commitment to formal invention.
Her work is included in many public and private collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Minneapolis Institute of Art; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The von Liebig Art Center, Naples, Florida; and the University of California, Santa Barbara.
She is a past recipient of the Orange County Contemporary Collectors Fellowship Award, the California Community Foundation Mid-Career Fellowship and the Pollock-Krasner Grant. Her solo exhibition venues include ACME Gallery, Los Angeles; Ameringer|McEnery|Yohe, New York; Susanne Vielmetter Projects, Los Angeles; and Pomona Museum of Art, Claremont, California.
Gueorguieva lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her Master of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
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:
• Radha Pandey, papermaker and letterpress printer, on Oct. 27 at 5:30 p.m. in Richards Hall Rm. 15. Pandey earned her Master of Fine Arts in Book Arts from the University of Iowa Center for the Book where she was a recipient of the Iowa Arts Fellowship.
• 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.
