Department of Art: Visiting Artists Series
Date: September 30 2008 Location: Miller 102
Jenene Nagy will speak on September 30 at 7:00 p.m. in room 102, Miller Center for the Humanities.
Nagy is a visual artist living and working in Portland, Oregon. Blurring the boundaries of painting, sculpture, and installation, Nagy’s work aims to simultaneously reference where we are and where we wish we could be.
Nagy received her BFA from the University of Arizona in 1998, and her MFA from the University of Oregon in 2004. Her work has been exhibited as numerous venues including arthouse in Austin, TX, Brewery Project in Los Angeles, CA, Dam Stuhltrager in NY, and Takt Kunstprojektraum in Berlin, Germany. She has had solo exhibitions at Dinnerware ArtSpace in Tucson, AZ and the Portland Art Museum in Oregon. Lisa Radon of Ultra has called Nagy “a force to be reckoned with on all fronts.” Nagy’s work has been reviewed in the Willamette Week, PORT, the Oregonian, and the Portland Mercury. Along with a rigorous studio practice, Nagy is also the Director and Co-Curator of Tilt Gallery and Project Space, a venue for experimental and difficult to show work.
