Visiting artist Gregory Sale will give a lecture about his work at 6 p.m. in the Student Union Lookout Room on the Boise State campus. The multidisciplinary artist focuses on social issues, and takes great interest in the responses and involvement of his viewers.
In 2011, he explored Arizona's criminal justice system, as well as the ideas of punishment and discipline, in an exhibition at the Arizona State University Art Museum. He also created a series of Binkie Bears, felt-covered sculptures intended to "expand notions of museum/gallery culture."
Sale's resume is saturated with performance, video, public and community projects, as well as awards, grants and publications examining his work. He has held public lectures and workshops across the country. You can get the full lowdown on the artist at his website.
In addition to tonight's lecture, Sale will also give a workshop at 4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27. The workshop will take place in Room 103 of the Public Affairs and Arts West Building at Boise State. Both events are FREE.
