Artist Jeanne Silverthorne will discuss her investigation of the notion of vanitas, including the studio itself as a kind of ruin. She is best known for using rubber as a medium for sculpture that is at once dark, earthy and humorous. Silverthorne has been a member of the SVA faculty since 1993, and her work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. Presented by the BFA Visual & Critical Studies Department.
