Jennifer Steinkamp: Diaspore
A pioneering artist in digital media, California-based Jennifer Steinkamp is internationally recognized for her breathtaking installations of projected, computer-generated imagery. Steinkamp juxtaposes the organic and inorganic, the real and invented in room filling works that reflect upon the increasing synthesis of our real and virtual worlds. The artist will discuss her process and aesthetic concerns.
Conceived in 2006 and dedicated to the late art critic Clement Greenberg, the Critical Voices lecture series brings nationally and internationally renowned artists, art historians, critics, curators, and theorists to Portland to discuss the ideas that shape contemporary art and institutions worldwide. Past speakers have included Iwona Blazwick, John Elderfield, Richard Flood, Hal Foster, Michael Kimmelman, Rosalind Krauss, Mari Carmen Ramírez, and Peter Schjeldahl.
The series is sponsored in part by the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
