CAS Lecture: Peter Burr

September 20, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Peter Burr CAS Lecture

This lecture by School of Art alumnus Peter Burr (BFA ’02) takes a trans-media look at a history of experimental architecture from the etchings Giovanni Piranesi to the collages of Archigram to the generative dungeons of D&D.

Peter Burr creates images and environments that hover on the boundary between abstraction and figuration. In recent years he devoted himself to exploring the concept of an endlessly mutating labyrinth. His practice often engages with tools of the video game industry in the form of immersive cinematic artworks. These pieces have been presented internationally by various institutions including Documenta 14, Athens; MoMA PS1, New York; and The Barbican Centre, London. He has been recognized through grants and awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Creative Capital Grant, and a Sundance New Frontier Fellowship.

This lecture is presented by the Center for Arts in Society.
