Multimedia artist Oliver Lutz to visit campus

Oliver Lutz

The Lamar Dodd School of Art will welcome artist Oliver Lutz to campus Oct. 25 as part of the 2011-2012 Visiting Artist/Scholar Series. Lutz will give a lecture on his work at 5:30 p.m. in Room S151 of the art school. The lecture is free and open to the public.

In his projects, which often involve painting, installation, notation and video performance, Lutz explores conditions surrounding the individual, including culturally conditioned rituals, myths, social interaction and the viewer’s customary relationship to looking at art by deconstructing and reconfiguring the codes of viewer, subject and representation.

Lutz’ work has been exhibited at the Tate Modern (London), S.M.A.K. Museum of Contemporary Art (Gent, Belgium), Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), SFMOMA (San Francisco), Scaramouche (New York), The Kitchen (New York), Artpace (San Antonio), Wurttembergischer Kunstverein (Stuttgart, Germany), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), Broad Art Center (Los Angeles), among others.  Lutz received his master’s degree from MIT’s Program in Art, Culture and Technology in 2006 and was the recipient of the IV International Painting Prize Diputación de Castellón in 2007.
