Fall Lecture Series

Featuring Visiting Artists and Critics

Anderson Ranch Arts Center is thrilled to launch a new fall lecture series that will run weekly from October 20th through December 6th. The lineup consists of artists from around the country who will be traveling to Snowmass and spending one to three weeks at the Ranch completing projects within their area of expertise and exploring new work in the studios. Both visiting artists and visiting critics engage with the creative energy of the fall Artists-in-Residence who are currently on campus through studio visits and critiques and contribute to the community by presenting free lectures during their stay.

Visiting Artist and Critic Lectures are free, open to the public, and available in person or via livestream. Stick around after the event and join us for dinner! A buffet dinner will be served for $25/person immediately following the lecture. Registration is required for attendance.

November 10, 5:30-6:30PM 

Calida Rawles

Visiting Artist in Painting

The paintings of Calida Rawles merge hyper-realism with poetic abstraction. Situating her subjects in dynamic spaces, her recent work employs water as a vital, organic, and historically charged space. For Rawles, water signifies both physical and spiritual healing as well as historical trauma and racial exclusion. She uses this complicated duality as a means to envision a new space for Black healing and to reimagine her subjects beyond racialized tropes.

November 16, 5:30-6:30PM 

Ranu Mukherjee

Visiting Critic

Ranu Mukherjee makes hybrid work in painting, moving image, and installation to build new imaginative capacities. Her work is guided by the forces of ecology and non-human agency, diaspora and migration, motherhood, and transnational feminisms.

December 1, 5:30-6:30PM 

Maggie Jensen

Visiting Artist in Sculpture

Maggie Jensen builds installations of sculpture, sound, text, and performance. Her work often closely resembles cultural artifacts that signify oppressive conditions of power. Within the predetermined spaces of European figural and modernist traditions, humanistic vocabularies, and privatized architectures, she uses poetics and abstraction to express miscommunication and doubt. Doubt used as subject matter is a tool to interrogate concepts of animation and figuration in landscapes of excavated violence.

December 6, 5:30-6:30PM 

Rashawn Griffin and Sam Yates

Visiting Artists

Rashawn Griffin uses diverse materials such as bed sheets, tassels, food, and flora to create large-scale sculptures and paintings. After receiving an MFA from Yale University in 2005, he has exhibited in multiple solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad. Often pushing the boundaries between object and installation, his work challenges viewers to engage in their own past experiences when confronting his art.

Yates’ experience ranges from in-house media for Kansas City PBS, experiential design and wayfinding with Dimensional Innovations, to brand experience and identity with D.C. firm, Beveridge Seay.
