The Henry is excited to welcome Sharon Lockhart as a Gurvich Contemporary Art Project visiting artist. During her visit, Lockhart will engage with youth, artists, educators, and community members in a series of experimental gatherings to discuss her work and collectively generate new ideas around contemporary art practices. In this talk, Lockhart will share thoughts on her extensive practice and recent projects.

Lockhart (b. 1964) is an American artist living and working in Los Angeles. She received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Lockhart is currently an instructor at CalArts in Southern California. Working with communities to make films, photographs, and installations that are both visually compelling and socially engaged, Lockhart’s practice involves collaborations that unfold over extended periods of time. Celebrated for her highly conceptual yet effortlessly elegant work, Lockhart's practice often involves architectural elements, extensive periods of research, and long term relationships with her subjects and collaborators.

This talk is part of a Gurvich Contemporary Art Project, made possible by the Helen & Max Gurvich Fund.  Gurvich Projects seek to build connections between Seattle audiences and artists, both locally and around the globe, who are defying convention through their practice.
