  • Description

    The School of Art + Art History at the University of Florida is proud to present visiting artist Martha Rosler on January 30, 2018, at 6 p.m. in Weil Hall, Room 270 (WEIL 270). The Spring 2018 Visiting Artists Lecture Series is free and open to the public. The lectures offer the community an important opportunity to engage in discussions about contemporary art and culture in relation to national and international trends.

    Martha Rosler has long focused on matters of the public sphere and landscapes of everyday life, especially as they affect women. Her projects and writings in diverse media often center on the production and uses of space. “If You Lived Here” is her project cycle of shows and public discussions on housing, homelessness, and the built environment, held in New York in 1989 and reprised many times since. She has frequently addressed war and the national security climate, connecting daily life at home with the conduct of war abroad. Her recent book Culture Class is about the role of artists in the city and market. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

    The Visiting Artist Lecture Series is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, School of Art + Art History, and the Graduate Student Organization of Photography; Martha Rosler’s lecture was co-sponsored by HESCAH.
