Lyndon Barrois Jr.: Show Your Hands Empty
February 6 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Lyndon Barrois Jr.’s talk will share his recent approaches to themes of value, deception, reproduction, and interrogating history through fiction.
Barrois Jr. is an artist and professor at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Art. He uses magazines, advertising, cinema, and vernacular imagery as primary subjects of inquiry, translating the language of printing and design layout into a variety of formal and material juxtapositions. Barrois received his MFA from Washington University in St. Louis (2013), and his BFA in painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore (2006). He has recently completed residencies at the Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, Fogo Island Arts in Newfoundland, and at the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
