ARTSpeak Lecturer: Joyce Kosloff

Artist Joyce Kozloff will lecture about her work on Tuesday March 8, 2016  2:30 – 3:30 pm in the Katie Murphy Amphitheatre at the Fashion Institute of Technology, 7th Avenue at 27th Street, New York City.

Joyce Kozloff was one of the original members of the Pattern and Decoration movement and an early artist in the 1970s feminist art movements; she was also a founding member of the Heresies Collective.  Beginning in 1973, wishing to break down the Western hierarchy between “high art” and decoration, Kozloff created large paintings that referenced worldwide patterns and juxtaposed ornamental designs over a large field.  Since the 1990s, she has used cartography and maps as a structure for her longtime passions: history, geography, popular arts, and culture.  Kozloff’s awards include NEA grants and a Guggenheim Fellowship.  Her art is in numerous museum collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery, MoMA, the Jewish Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of Art.  She is represented by DC Moore Gallery in New York.

Other ARTSpeak events this academic year include student visits to artist studios, a panel discussion, and an exhibition of work by Fine Arts majors curated by and with texts by AHMP majors in the FIT Library.

This event 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.

This event is open to the FIT community and public.
