Blaffer Art Museum and the University of Houston School of Art are pleased to present a free talk by artist Armand Morin, a resident with Fieldwork: Marfa, an international researcher-in-residence program coordinated by ESBA Nantes Métropole and HEAD-Genève. The talk will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 1 in the UH Fine Arts Building, Room 110 (adjacent to Blaffer, which is closed for installation.)
The Brussels-based Morin’s sculptural and video-based work deals with the world of leisure which he links to architecture and the landscape using a historical, sociological and political approach. His work examines forms generated by the entertainment industry as well as popular science and leisure. He has exhibited his work in Europe and in 2014 held a performance, “La dérive des documents (The documentary drift)” at Centre Pompidou, Paris. Morin received the City of Nantes Fine Arts award in 2008 and graduated from the Nantes School of Fine Arts in 2007.
