Please join Nina Katchadourian and Veronica Roberts, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Blanton Museum of Art, for a conversation about Nina Katchadourian: Curiouser.

Katchadourian: Curiouser explores several major bodies of work by celebrated Stanford-born, Brooklyn-based artist Nina Katchadourian (b. 1968), including video, photography, sculpture, and sound art. Katchadourian’s work reveals the creative potential, to use the artist’s words, that “lurks within the mundane”. Using ingenuity and humor, her practice encourages us to reinvigorate our own sense of curiosity and creativity, and to see our everyday surroundings as a site of discovery and possibility. This exhibition is organized by the Blanton Museum of Art and is on view from September 15, 2017 – January 7, 2018 in Pigott Family Gallery at Cantor Arts Center.

This program is free and open to the public but space is limited and registration is required

Please mark your calendars for another upcoming talk by Nina Katchadourian on Thursday, October 19 at 6:30PM at CEMEX Auditorium. No registration will be required for the October 19 program and it will be free and open to the public.
