On The Wall – Artist Talk & Guest Scholar Presentation
May 1, 2019
Reilly Gallery, Smith Center for the Arts
Join us as we open On the Wall: Elizabeth Corkery for an Artist Talk & Guest Scholar Presentation featuring Elizabeth Corkery and A. Melissa Venator, 2016–19 Stefan Engelhorn Curatorial Fellow at Harvard Art Museums.
On the Wall is PCG’s annual commission of large-scale artworks applied directly to the walls of the Reilly Gallery. As part of an interdisciplinary initiative at the College to explore and develop new scholarship on the rich traditions of the mural format, Elizabeth Corkery, an Australian-American artist living and working in California, transforms the exhibition space with wall-mounted graphics, reliefs and tapestries.
This iteration of On the Wall builds on Corkery’s collective body of work, which has long embodied the Bauhaus notion that constant discord and harmony are necessary conditions of creative work.
