  • Description

    Having grown up in post-communist Bulgaria, Iren's visual and theoretical interests arise from a place where language dictates divergent thinking. The lecture will be an artist talk covering recent bodies of work that explore the relationship between form, language, and architecture. The focus will be on her last two solo exhibitions - "This is Just to Say" and "Just Before".

    Iren Tete is Artist in Residence at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. She recently completed a year-long position as Visiting Faculty at Alberta University of the Arts in Calgary, Canada. Iren holds an MFA in Studio Art from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a BS in Kinesiology and Health Sciences from the College of William and Mary. Iren’s work has been shown nationally and internationally, as well as published by Friend of the Artist and Create! Magazine. Recently, she was selected as an Emerging Artist by Ceramics Monthly Magazine. Iren has received multiple grants that have supported her practice and research. During the summer of 2018 she was able to further her study of Brutalist theory and architecture through a residency at the Zentrum fur Keramik in Berlin, Germany. She has also completed residencies at the University of Cincinnati (Cincinnati, OH) and the Northern Clay Center (Minneapolis, MN). Iren is represented by Galleri Urbane (Dallas, TX) where she has a show scheduled for January 2021.
