Erin Riley - Artist Lecture
FIRST FRIDAY LECTURE SERIES
PRESENTED BY THE SCHOOL OF ART
Erin M Riley is a tapestry weaver living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Riley received her BFA in 2007 from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA and her MFA from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA, in 2009. The artist has been weaving imagery culled from the Internet, and more recently photographs she has taken of herself using hand-dyed wool on a floor loom. Based on social media images as well as autobiographical experiences that focus on objects and fleeting moments, Riley’s work offers visual dialogue that aims to reevaluate and reconsider the values of contemporary women, their social spheres and stratification, as well as their attitudes towards sex and sexuality through keyhole-like glimpses into their lives.
Artist Lecture will take place in Room 165 at the Center for the Visual Arts at 12:00 noon.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
