Visual Studies Producing Space Lecture Series Presents Megan Whitmarsh
Visual Studies is proud to present a lecture by Los Angeles artist Megan Whitmarsh about her work on Monday March 9 at 12pm in room B89.
Working predominantly with textiles, Los Angeles-based artist Megan Whitmarsh uses hand-stitched embroidery to fabricate replicas of personal and cultural ephemera. Although she also creates comic books, paintings, drawings, and stop animation, Whitmarsh is best known for her hand-embroidered canvases and soft sculptures, which make reference to both contemporary pop culture and the 1970s and '80s eras of her childhood. She has worked with curators Robert Wilson, Todd Oldham, Dean Daderko, and Adi Nachman among others and has had projects commissioned by Art Basel Miami (Wolfsonian Museum), the Watermill Center, David Byrne, Amy Sedaris, MTV and etsy. She shows in galleries and museums internationally including recent exhibitions in New York City, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Brussels, Zurich, Valencia, Malmo, Sweden and Sete, France.
