OLALEKAN JEYIFOUS: SPECULATIVE FUTURES (IMMINENCE AND IMMANENCE) / FRED SCRUTON: AMERICAN SITES
Start Date: 3/6/2018Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 3/6/2018End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
In conjunction with the opening of the Alternative Visions: Fantasy Architecture exhibition later this evening, two of the featured artists will discuss their work. As a visual artist with a background in architecture, Olalekan Jeyifous produces artwork in a variety of media that is strongly rooted in borrowed and invented narratives. These narratives often explore comprehensive constructions of urban utopias and dystopias that deal with the interstices of architecture, emerging technologies, and culture, anchoring them with a direct relevance to contemporary social issues in ways that communicate their participation in and alienation from the larger world. Fred Scruton is a former professional photographer of artwork and architecture in New York City whose current work focuses on the creations of self-taught artists, with a particular focus on the unsalable site-specific work of environment builders. Through a process of “collaborative documentation,” his photographs celebrate the achievement of artists who work without the benefit of marketplace visibility.

An acclaimed weekly lecture series brings in artists, designers, and critical theorists from around the world, broadening the students’ experiential base and complementing local offerings. All lectures and exhibitions are open to the general public free of charge. Unless otherwise indicated, all presentations will be held in the Art Building, Room #133, from 5-6p
