Artist Talk - Scott Carter
The School of Art’s First Friday Lecture Series continues with Scott Carter, visiting artist in sculpture and expanded media, on Oct. 5 at noon in Room 165 of the Center for the Visual Arts. All lectures are free and open to the public.
Mr. Carter is a Wisconsin-based artist whose work is influenced by the experience of living among mass-produced materials, spaces and objects that are inherent in contemporary architecture and design. His work manifests as immersive installations and interactive objects that facilitate subtle shifts in value and attempt to redefine utility in relation to everyday experiences. His practice parallels contemporary discourse in art, design, architecture and sound.
Mr. Carter received his MFA in Sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011, where he was the first recipient of the Eldon Danhausen Fellowship for Sculpture. Selected solo shows include Velocity - Linda Warren Projects, Chicago (2017); The Nature of Being - Pinnacle Gallery, Savannah, Georgia (2015); The Shape of Things - Beers Contemporary, London (2014); Disonar - Evanston Art Center, Evanston, Illinois (2013) and Force Majeure - Linda Warren Projects, Chicago (2012).
