Denison’s Studio Art program welcomes Vail visiting artist Jeanine Oleson presenting an artist talk.
Oleson will discuss her recent work of interrelated performances, objects, and videos in research on contemporary conditions of lived experience and the irreconcilable relationships between bodies, labor, resources and art. Oleson will speak about the development of a recent project, Conduct matters, which takes the idea of conduction that is material, political, musical and ethical while working with an ensemble cast the production cycle of copper as a ground to examine communication, technology, and the sensory through an absurdist lens.
Oleson is an interdisciplinary artist working with images, materiality, and language, which she forms into complex and humorous objects, images, videos, and performances. She has shown her work extensively both nationally and internationally including recent shows at The Hammer Museum; LA (2017), Commonwealth and Council, LA (2017); Coreana Museum, Seoul (2017); Sculpture Center, NY (2016) and New Museum, NY (2014).
