About this event
Chloe Lum & Yannick Desranleau are multidisciplinary visual artists based in Montreal. Their work focuses on the lifespan of material, and how material stresses cause reactions that can be said to animate the materials. The duo is equally interested in collaboration; with each other, other artists, and their materials, as both subject matter and research interest. These interests in collaboration and materiality inform their practice in installation, sculpture, photography, dance, print and video wherein objects perform via their decay? to be reused and redeployed wearing the traces of past use. They have exhibited widely, recently at The Confederation Center for The Arts Gallery in Charlottetown, and The Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College in Chicago.
This visiting artist talk is co-sponsored by St. Cloud State University and supported by the Printmaking Program and the Department of Art’s Visiting Artists and Critics Program.
The Visiting Artists & Critics Program fosters a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through dialogue. Artists of national significance working in all media are invited to the Department of Art to present public lectures and meet with graduate students in seminars and for individual critique. Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to attend workshops and lectures.
