What’s New in Fine Arts? (Fall Term)


Course description

The Edge of Everything

Presenter: Kelly Richardson, MFA, Department of Visual Arts

Friday, Dec. 7: 12:30 to 1:45pm

Taking cues from 19th-century painting, 20th-century cinema, and 21st-century planetary research, Associate Professor of Visual Arts Kelly Richardson crafts video installations and prints that offer imaginative glimpses into the future which prompt a careful consideration of the present. For over a decade, Richardson has made works which speculate on what lies ahead given our current trajectory, often by imagining sublime, apocalyptic landscapes that have become inhospitable to humanity. This talk will cover some of her major works to date including her most recent IMAX film commission currently in production.

Kelly Richardson’s work has been exhibited across North America, Asia and Europe. Recent solo exhibitions include Dundee Contemporary Arts (Scotland), SMoCA (USA), Naturhistorisches Museum (Vienna) and a major survey at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery (USA). Her video installations and photographs have been selected for the Beijing, Busan, Canadian, Gwangju and Montréal biennials, TIFF and Sundance Film Festival. Her work is represented in public collections across the UK, USA and Canada, including the Hirshhorn Museum (USA); Albright-Knox Art Gallery (USA); Arts Council Collection (UK); National Gallery of Canada; Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal; Art Gallery of Ontario; among others.
