SUSAN RANKAITIS_FEAR_OF SNAKE_No7 2014_600

Fear of Snake No. 7, 2014

Susan Rankaitis

Saturday, Oct. 22, 11:00am-12:00pm

Susan Rankaitis’ works are often defined as experimental, combining traditional photographic processes with painting, drawing and other mediums. Over a 40-year career, Rankaitis has collaborated on projects with neuroscientists, choreographers, dancers, biologists, poets, and writers, using photographic materials throughout.

 

Rankaitis will present a lecture entitled, “The Boundaries Become Fluid” itself a segment of a quote from Laszlo Moholy-Nagy. Influenced by Moholy-Nagy’s work and philosophical stance, Rankaitis creates work at the borderline between painting and photography. Throughout her numerous collaborations fluidity has remained the underlying constant in Rankaitis’ work—fluidity between mediums, fields, and subjects.  Join us for a compelling lecture examining the creative process from an artist who has consistently broken boundaries.


Festival Passes available inside the Lafayette Hotel beginning Friday, Oct. 21.
