The Institute of Fine Arts, University of New York has invited Haim Steinbach to give a lecture about his work.
Steinbach’s work sets forth new contexts for a wide range of objects that are handmade and mass-produced, ordinary as well as extraordinary, new and old. He has said that his work is 'about vernacular, which is a common form of language: things that we make, express and produce' and that it is 'not only about selecting and arranging objects of my own choice, but also presenting the objects chosen by others'.
The lectures are free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required and seating in the Lecture Hall is on a first-come first-served basis with RSVP. A reception will follow.
The lecture was organized by Student Coordinators Anne Wheeler and Jeffrey Uslip.
