Colby Bird Lecture

(5:00 PM - 6:00 PM)
Date: Wednesday, Oct. 22
Location: Binns-Merrill Hall, Room 106C
Time: 5 P.M
Cost to Attend Event: Free and open to the public.
Sponsored by Committee or Division: The Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography and The Division of Sculpture and Dimensional Studies

Colby Bird’s at times obsessive, meditative practice bridges photography and sculpture, turning photographs into objects and striking a balance between the tangible and intangible. At once about process, intuitive making and conceptual quandaries, Bird re-works and re-interprets the familiar, turning the everyday into sensual objects that appear deceptively simple.

Labor and pleasure wrestle with each other through handmade lamps, photographs, and support stands, with no clear victor.

Colby Bird received an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 2004. Since then he has exhibited his work widely, including solo exhibitions in the University Galleries at Texas State University, Fitzory in New York, Lora Reynolds Gallery in Austin and Halsey-Mckay in East Hampton.

Bird has been included in group shows at the Aspen Art Museum, Arthouse in Austin, and the Hagedorn Foundation in Atlanta. His work is in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art and has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, The New Yorker and The Wall Street Journal. Bird currently lives and works in Los Angeles and New York.
