Lecture Series: Jessi Reaves
November 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Jessi Reaves’ practice collapses the barriers between furniture and sculpture through the creation functional pieces that inject animism and desire into the coldness of modernism. Imperfect works bring together notions of deconstruction and embellishment with humble materials such as homemade particleboard, foam, and even car parts. Her work has been shown at the SculptureCenter, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, and at the Whitney, as part of the 2017 biennial.
Organized in collaboration with Carnegie Museum of Art and Carnegie International, 57th Edition, 2018.
All lectures are free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the East Campus Garage after 5:00pm or on Frew, Margaret Morrison, and Tech Streets after 6:00pm.
