The Combine was first introduced in 1835 for use in agriculture to harvest crops by reaping, threshing, and winnowing material. Like a combine, this lecture will process recent work in order to distill objectives, priorities, and outcomes while examining and drawing parallels to such yields.
Full-Time Sculpture Faculty Candidate Brian Gillis is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice examines relevant socio-cultural issues that may have fallen on deaf ears, been buried over time, or simply obscured by something else. He is interested in history as both an archive and a mine; as that which can at once chronicle and act as a catalyst for the reconsideration of one's world. His work is discursive, research based, and uses a variety of production strategies ranging from observation and representation, to comment and action.
