Daphne Fitzpatrick Lecture Sound into Color
2012 January 12 (Thu) 18:30-20:00
Daphne Fitzpatrick：Contemporary American artist. She is known for her witty embrace of semantic shifts that result from imaginative plays with materials, objects, and actions. In her work, contradictions in the space between what the artist describes as softness and perversity wage a sarcastic critique on political power structures, from notions of nationalism or the authorities of organized religion to the conceit of the museum and art history. Like the traditions established by Dada and Surrealism, her uncanny juxtapositions uproot stable understandings of the world around us. For Fitzpatrick even the banal is absurd. Fitzpatrick was born and raised on Long Island, New York. She was educated at The School Of Visual Arts, studying with Laurie Simmons, Craig Owens and Carol Squires. . She has lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn since 1986. Fitzpatrick organized the studio of Richard Prince from 1989-1991. She then managed the studio and installation schedule for Robert Gober from 1991 -2001. Since 2001 she has been on the faculty of Yale University in the Department of Sculpture. She has exhibited internationally and is represented in New York at American Contemporary.
