Visiting Artist: Denise Pelletier

 

| Open Player in New Window

Material culture, historical image, and literary influences converge in the work of American artist Denise Pelletier. Addressing the body as both flesh and social construct, her ceramic and mixed media objects and installations make symbolic use of reinvented cultural artifacts, displaced and transformed to create new meanings and re-imagined narratives. Denise earned an MFA in Ceramics from Alfred University in 1994, and currently teaches at Connecticut College, where she is an Associate Professor of Art and Art Department Chair. She shows her work extensively in the United States and abroad.

Artists representing some of the most innovative and influential work being done today come to lecture at the University of Oregon. The Department of Art brings in about a dozen artists and critics each year from across the nation and abroad to lecture and meet with students in small groups or individual studio visits. In addition to the support each media area has for such an enterprise, the two annual endowed lectures, the George & Matilde Fowler lecture and the Davis Family Lecture, bring in particularly high-profile artists and critics who challenge our assumptions about art and have broad relevance across media. These public lectures provide not only a unique opportunity to hear directly from artists about their work, but also for students to work with them directly in a more intimate capacity.
