  • Description

    The School of Art + Art History at the University of Florida is proud to present visiting artist Eileen Quinlan on February 20, 2018, at 6 p.m. in Little Hall, Room 101 (LIT 101). The Spring 2018 Visiting Artists Lecture Series is free and open to the public. The lectures offer the community an important opportunity to engage in discussions about contemporary art and culture in relation to national and international trends.

    Eileen Quinlan’s experimental work with photography ranges from the formal to the formless and straddles multiple formats. Encompassing digital and analog, color and black and white, her subjects range from mortality to motherhood. Lately she’s confronting environmental collapse, a woman’s right to bodily self-determination, the Sisyphean double-bind of domestic labor, the erotics of middle age, the omnipresence of screen devices, and living with the specter of terrorism. Eileen Quinlan earned her MFA from Columbia University in 2005. Her work is in permanent collection of the Guggenheim Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and several others. She teaches at Bard College and at The Cooper Union.

    The Visiting Artist Lecture Series is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, School of Art + Art History, and the Graduate Student Organization of Photography.
