Are you curious about the fall lineup for the Art Lecture Series?
Evergreen Art Lecture Series Fall 2021
The Art Lecture Series presents a broad range of interdisciplinary approaches to contemporary art issues by artists, writers, activists and scholars. The ongoing aim is to bring an array of practices from a variety of fields, areas of inquiry and creative production that are active in the world beyond our campus. The series provides a lively forum for the exchange of ideas between the speakers, students, faculty, staff and the public.
All Lectures are free and open to the public. Please join us for this great line-up and an opportunity to participate in campus-wide events. They will be presented as Zoom Webinars.
Program faculty please let me know if you plan to attend this lecture and/or the whole series.
Many thanks to Julie Rahn, Dave Cramton, Media Interns and all in Media Services

Wednesday, October 20, Lauren Alyssa Bierly, is an interdisciplinary artist with ten-years exhibition management experience in contemporary art, design and fashion. Her artwork is rooted in phenomenology and inspired by ecology, language and architecture. Through processes of mapping, her work takes the form of site documentation, color journals, mixed-media installations, and text-to-color reflections. As a synaesthete, Bierly is interested in the intersection of sensory languages in our environments—like color perception, sound recognition, time sensing—and how these sensory vocabularies shape our subjective experience of identity and connection to place.
Wednesday, November 3, BeAnotherLab, is an international, interdisciplinary art-science research laboratory dedicated to exploring the relationship between identity and empathy. They develop immersive technology systems to generate new modes of storytelling and to experiment with the perception of self and other. BeAnotherLab works at the intersection of art, science and technology. They question the hierarchies between these different ways of knowing and approach them as complementary, overlapping bodies of knowledge.
