ARTSpeak: Carrie Moyer
March 21, 2017 at 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
ARTSpeak 2016-2017 is an interdisciplinary program presented by the departments of Fine Arts and History of Art that consists of lectures and a panel discussion on the theme of The Presence of Art History in the Mind of the Artist. The theme explores the impact of art history on the contemporary artist’s studio practice.
On Tuesday, March 21, ARTSpeak presents artist Carrie Moyer, who is an American painter and writer based in Brooklyn. Her paintings have merged abstract aesthetics and political imagery, and she juxtaposes ancient, modern, and contemporary imagery, taking them from their old contexts and placing them into a new one. Moyer’s work has been exhibited at MoMA PS1, the Tang Museum, the Weatherspoon Art Museum, and other venues in the US and Europe. She has been selected to participate in the 2017 Whitney Biennial. Her writing has appeared in publications such as Art in America, Artforum, the Brooklyn Rail, and Modern Painters. She is the recipient of awards from the Guggenheim and Joan Mitchell foundations, Anonymous Was a Woman, and Creative Capital, among others. Moyer received a BFA from Pratt Institute, an MA in computer graphics from New York Institute of Technology, and an MFA from Bard College. She is an associate professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Hunter College, and is represented by DC Moore Gallery in New York.
The ARTSpeak program has been made possible in part through funding by the FIT Student-Faculty Corporation, the School of Art and Design, and the School of Liberal Arts.
