Mindy will be speaking about the historical and contemporary implications of the relationship between object and environment. By investigating the interplay of three and two-dimensional works in space and how to engage consumer understanding and response, it is Mindy’s intention to assist artists in structuring a platform for professional development. This is a perfect lecture for anyone in the arts world – from artists, to other gallery owners – to hear the perspective of talented and funny Mindy Solomon.
This event is part of 92Ys Virtual Clay series: offering first of a kind, real-time online classes that gather a vibrant community of artists, designers and art historians to speak with you about important topics in ceramics. The conversations are meant to challenge preconceptions and explore new territory, inspiring you to think about the world in a fresh and different way. All of this in the comfort of your home, studio or classroom.
