Mohr Visiting Artist Talk at Stanford

February 16, 2012

The Department of Art & Art History is pleased to host San Francisco-based artist Camille Utterback as the first Mohr Visiting Artist at Stanford. Her residency is part of the new Mohr Visiting Artist Program, administered by the Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts (SiCa), which brings acclaimed and emerging artists to campus for a one-term period to teach a credited course and provide a presentation, exhibit or performance for the Stanford community and the public. As part of her winter-term residency, Utterback is teaching an art practice course titled “Time Shifts” that examines how individual perceptions and artistic representations of time have shifted with technology changes. She will also be presenting an artist talk on February 16, 5:30 PM, in AR2 at the Cummings Art Building. At the lecture, she will show documentation of her interactive installations and discuss her artistic and technical processes.

An internationally renowned artist, Camille Utterback is known for her interactive installations and reactive sculptures that engage the audience in a dynamic process of kinesthetic experience. Her work has been exhibited widely at local and international galleries, festivals, and museums including The New Museum of Contemporary Art in NY, The Seoul Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Netherlands Institute for Media Art, and Ars Electronica Center in Austria, among others. She has garnered many prestigious awards including the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship and the Rockefeller Foundation New Media Fellowship, as well as major public commissions from the cities of San Jose and St. Louis Park in Minnesota.

The Mohr Visiting Artist Program is supported by Nancy and Larry Mohr and administered by SiCa.
