The LeRoy Neiman Center, 37 S. Wabash Ave.
Anicka Yi uses perishable and impermanent media to investigate relationships between materials and materialism and consumption and consumerism. Her work probes the sensorial experience of art, exploring the use of scent as a reaction to the predominant presentation of art as visual. In 2013, the New York-based artist had a solo show at Lars Friedrich gallery in Berlin, Germany, and in 2014, she had a solo show at 47 Canal, New York. Yi’s work was included in the 12th Biennale de Lyon, France, as well as in group shows at Studiolo, Zurich, Switzerland; Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami; T293, Rome, Italy; Museum fur Gegenwartskunst, Basel, Switzerland; Murray Guy, New York; and Altman Siegel, San Francisco.
Presented with the Department of Fiber and Material Studies. This lecture was made possible by the William Bronson and Grayce Slovet Mitchell Lectureship.
All lectures and events are free and open to the public.
