Beverly Fishman, Artist-in-Residence and Head of the Painting department, and Elliott Earls, Designer-in-Residence and Head of 2D Design, will each deliver a presentation about their recent sabbaticals. Fishman will discuss living and working in New York, preparing for a solo exhibition and the motivations behind her recent body of work, which explore our contemporary global condition in which drugs construct and contest our identities and in which the production and consumption of art can seem like an addiction. Earls will discuss how disaster capitalism, day-trading strategies, YouTube and Google Adwords can form the basis of an experimental design practice.
All lectures are held in Cranbrook Art Museum’s deSalle Auditorium and are free to ArtMembers and students with identification, and included with Museum admission for the general public. Cranbrook Art Museum is located at 39221 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
