Just a quick reminder that the first VCS-sponsored lecture in the Spring 2011 Art in the First Person Lecture Series will take place this Tuesday, January 25th, at 6:30 p.m.

This week’s lecture will feature artist and faculty member Jeanne Silverthorne, who will speak about her work. Here is a description from SVA’s announcement for the event:

Silverthorne will discuss her investigation of the notion of vanitas, including the studio itself as a kind of ruin. She is best known for using rubber as a medium for sculpture that is at once dark, earthy and humorous. Silverthorne has been a member of the SVA faculty since 1993, and her work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. Presented by the BFA Visual & Critical Studies Department.

The lecture will be held in room 101C at 133/141 West 21st Street in New York City. As with all Art in the First person events, it is free and open to the public.

I will be at tomorrow night’s talk, and will post an article about it later this week. Hope to see you there.
