Paul Pfeiffer, Lecture

Thursday, February 18, 2016
5:30 pm, Dodd S151 Auditorium

Paul Pfeiffer will be the in-residence Dodd Chair beginning spring 2016 and continuing through spring of 2018.  

Paul Pfeiffer was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but spent most of his early years in the Philippines and later relocated to New York. He attended the San Francisco Art Institute, Hunter College, and the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program. Pfeiffer has had solo exhibitions at Paula Cooper Gallery in New York, Thomas Dane Gallery in London, and the Contemporary Museum in Honolulu, HI, among many others. Pfeiffer’s work has been in numerous museum exhibitions, including the 2000 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY, the 2001 Venice Biennale, and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Currently, he has a solo exhibition at the Museum of American Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, Manila, Philippines.

Pfeiffer’s work in the mediums of sculpture, photography, and video often derives from readymade photographs and television footage, which Pfeiffer transforms in an effort to inspire contemplation of the role played by mass-media in contemporary culture. 

His lecture is open to the public and is scheduled for Thursday at 5:30pm,
