Visiting Artist Lecture No. 3: James Hyde in the Art Department

Please join us for this fall’s
Visiting Artist Lecture:

James Hyde
October 28th, 1PM
Room 5127, Boylan Hall

James Hyde is a contemporary New York based painter, sculptor and photographer whose work has been described as an “exploration of physicality”. Through his use of unconventional materials, Hyde explores the realms of painting as symbolic and allegorical situations that happen to be made by a particular medium and set of materials. “I’m more interested in the idea of problems and possibilities, of ways in which painting relates to its own history. And painting is not the most brilliant sociologically horizontal medium. It’s not fast; it doesn’t spit out popular imagery very quickly. But it has an enormous resonance historically” said Hyde in an interview with Phong Boi from the Brooklyn Rail.

Hyde is represented by Horton Gallery in New York and exhibits internationally with Schau Ort, Zurich, Switzerland and Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire, Paris, France. He has works in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum and has exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. He also teaches regularly at Brooklyn College. Please join us in welcoming James as he shares his work and experience with us!

See you all on October 28th,
