Synapse Lecture: Michelle Segre
Please note, this event has expired.
This public lecture is part of the Synapse Art and Science lecture series focusing on the intersection of these disciplines. Presented in collaboration with Myers Residency.
In her sculptures composed of plaster, wire, mesh, found detritus, and various organic matter, Michelle Segre develops a heterogeneous vision, informed as much by mega-ancient Neolithic idols as by Joan Miró and science fiction. The effect is fantastical and bizarre, an invitation to negotiate an alternate reality and a sculptural set of unknowns. Segre’s work hovers at an edge where everything remains fragmentary and incomplete, on the brink of coming apart, refusing to fulfill expectations in any predictable way. The process is improvisational and fluid, resulting in pieces that are both playfully casual and intense. Segre’s public lecture is part of the Synapse Art and Science lecture series focusing on the intersection of these disciplines.
Her work has been included in exhibitions at CU Art Museum in Boulder, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, and PS1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City, among others. She has been honored with the American Academy ofView more
