Useless the Flowers opened at the Robert F DeCaprio Gallery in the Chicago area, at Moraine Valley Community College. This is a solo exhibition of works reflecting on monuments and memorials - how and who we remember - through a practice of removal and replacement, simulating absence and then presence. The show runs through mid-November.
Four Chapters in the Present We Were opens at the Millstone Gallery at COCA in St. Louis. This is a solo exhibition that features the research project and series of monotypes, Prosthetic Memories. The show runs through mid-October.
I will be at the University of Iowa on November 11th and 12th as a visiting artist. Hello Iowa City!
I'm giving a gallery talk at the International Print Center New York on Saturday, November 6 for their members and other print club groups as part of Print Week!
Lisa is busy preparing for a couple of exciting opportunities at conferences this fall. She is a featured public artist at the MAPC (Mid-America Print Council) conference hosted by the University of Minnesota titled, Old World New World.
She is working with All Along Press
and lots of wonderful people who are participating to create the public project, We Belong To This Band.
Lisa is also a speaker on the panel, Print in the Public Sphere at the
Printopolis Symposium hosted by Open Studio in Toronto, October 21-24, 2010.
Lisa was a visiting artist at the University of Georgia, Athens
Hosted by the Student Print Club, we did a collaborative project called "Swell." Students in the print program at UGA created images of spring - growth, rebirth, etc. - and printed them on to magnets. These were attached to cars which paraded through downtown Athens. We worked in partnership with the local radio station WUOG - they played Stravinsky's Rite of Spring which we blasted on our car radios while parading through the streets. At the end of the parade, the prints were distributed by attaching them to other magnetic surfaces. Spring was sprung.
Old Media/Old News, group exhibition at the Luminary Center for the Arts.
"Old Media/Old News proposes the artist as an alternative documentarian who engages, ingests, reimagines, or combats contemporary news sources and the mode of knowledge they presuppose. Positioning the six artists included as harbingers as well as combatants of the disposability and passivity we feel toward the contemporary media climate, Old Media/Old News is a document of the content stream made static and news invested in as art."
The Blindspot Galleries project, All in Good Company, All in Good Time will be part of the (S)edition exhibition at the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art in Grand Rapids, Michigan from December through the beginning of March.
Lisa was a visiting artist at Fresh Hot Press, University of Wisconsin, Madison. She worked with the awesome graduate students there to complete a varied suite of monoprints that are part of her current project dealing with memory and history.
Lisa resurrected Blindspot Galleries for the exhibition, Multiple x Multiple at the University of Tennessee, Ewing Gallery from October 9th - November 8th.
The mixed media monotype,
Flashbulb Memory 1967: Detroit Riots is included in the
20th National Exhibition of the Los Angeles Printmaking Society.
The project on Blindspot is entitled, All in Good Company, All in Good Time. It is comprised of woodcut portraits on magnetic vinyl of 20 people who left this world between July 3, 2008 and July 3, 2009, including Isaac Hayes, Jesse Helms, Michael Jackson, Bettie Page, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, and others. The entire project is meant to be a mobile monument that celebrates the lives of our fellow travelers and acts as a memento mori - a reminder of our mortality.
