|Clark Art Virtual Conversation With Artist |
|01:16PM / Monday, March 01, 2021|
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Artist Erin Shirreff discusses her work and her current exhibition at the Clark, "Remainders," in a live conversation with Robert Wiesenberger, associate curator of contemporary projects, on Wednesday, March 10.
This free program takes place over Zoom at 12:30 pm.
Trained as a sculptor, Shirreff works between photography, sculpture, and video to explore the relationship between objects and their representations, and the mythmaking behind art history. Remainders, her year-long installation in public spaces at the Clark, encourages slow looking, forensic attention to detail, and an appreciation that things may not be quite as they appear.
Erin Shirreff was born in 1975 in Kelowna, British Columbia and currently lives and works in Montreal. She holds a BFA in visual arts from the University of Victoria, British Columbia, and an MFA in sculpture from Yale University. She has recently been the subject of solo exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Kunsthalle Basel; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; and Albright-Knox Gallery.
Remainders is organized by the Clark Art Institute and curated by Robert Wiesenberger, associate curator of contemporary projects. Erin Shirreff's work is courtesy of the artist; Sikkema Jenkins & Co., New York; and Bradley Ertaskiran, Montreal. It is on view through January 2, 2022.
