The School of Art, Art History and Design’s Hixson-Lied Visiting Artists and Scholars lecture series will continue in February with three new artists.

Each lecture takes place at 5:30 p.m. in Richards Hall, Room 15. The lectures are free and open to the public. Photographer Rebecca Morse’s lecture is Feb. 4, ceramic artist Sergei Isupov’s lecture is Feb. 5 and painter David Gracie’s lecture is Feb. 12.

Morse is a curator in the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Her recent projects include Thomas Joshua Cooper: The World’s Edge, Sarah Charlesworth: Doubleworld and Larry Sultan: Here and Home.

Isupov creates porcelain works, which have been featured in Postmodern Ceramics, Sex Pots: Eroticsm in Ceramics, The Ceramic Surface; Shy Boy, She Devil and Isis: The Art of Conceptual Craft; Confrontational Ceramics.

Gracie is a painter who addresses both the abstractness and specificity of daily life. He is currently associate professor of art at Nebraska Wesleyan University where he is also Director of Elder Gallery.

Remaining lectures in the series are:

  • March 4: Josh Winkler, printmaking. Winkler focuses on environmental issues connected to history and place. He is currently completing his second Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board and was recently selected for an artist residency at the University of Minnesota’s Bell Museum of Natural History.

  • March 18: Kristian Bjørnard, foundations. Bjørnard is professor of graphic design at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

  • March 30: Sabine Ladstätter, art history. Ladstätter is currently director of the Ephesus excavations in Turkey. She is involved with economic and landscape archaeology, as well as with the documentation and preservation of archaeological cultural heritage.

  • April 8: Brad Kahlhamer, painting. Kahlhamer lives and works in New York City. He is represented by Jack Shainman Gallery in New York City and Andréhn-Schiptjenko in Stockholm.

Underwritten by the Hixson-Lied Endowment with additional support from other sources, the series enriches the culture of the state by providing a way for Nebraskans to interact with luminaries in the fields of art, art history and design. Each visiting artist or scholar spends one to three days on campus to meet with classes, participate in critiques and give demonstrations.
