The Boise State University Visiting Artist and Scholar Program, the Department of Art, Design and Visual Studies, and Boise State Blue Galleries in collaboration Weber State University and the University of Utah Print Fund, and the Rocky Mountain Printmaking Alliance, will host a virtual lecture by multi-media artist Paula Wilson.
The lecture will take place at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 22. Zoom link.
Wilson is a multimedia artist whose densely layered, colorful, and often monumental works utilize a variety of painting, collage, film, installation, performance, and print techniques. As a Black woman born in Chicago, Illinois, and living in the American desert, Wilson’s multifaceted work resists a singular viewpoint. Her layering of color, image, pattern, and materials acts as a visual metaphor for the complex stratum of histories and cultures, both real and imagined, that inform her work.
Wilson received an MFA from Columbia University in New York and a BFA from
Washington University in St. Louis. Wilson’s artworks are in the collections of The Studio Museum in Harlem, Yale University, Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, The Rubell Family Collection, The New York Public Library, and The Albuquerque Museum.
Wilson’s work is included in the exhibition, Marking Time/Making Space on view in the Blue Galleries through Oct. 27. Blue Galleries Hours: Tuesday-Friday 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Facial coverings are required in all indoor spaces on the Boise State University campus.
