Fine Arts Lecture Series : Dana Schutz, Thurs. Apr. 15, 5:30pm

Dana Schutz, How We Cured the Plague, 2007

Painter Dana Schutz will present an artist talk on Thursday, April 15 at 5:30pm at Penn as part of the MFA Fine Arts Lecture series. Schutz is a New York-based artist who graduated with her MFA from Columbia in 2002 and has tremendous artistic success since that time. Her work has already been included in major museum collections and she is represented by Zach Feuer LFL.

In Bomb magazine, critic Mei Chin wrote that "dissection and dismemberment abound in Dana Schutz's work, all offset by sunny colors and a pert sense of humor. Among other things, she has created a race of people who eat themselves; a guy called Frank who is the last man on Earth; a gravity-phobic person who has tied herself to the ground; and a variety of characters that are spliced, for different reasons, on operating tables. Schutz loves to give her characters life and then cut them up. Yet hers is a blithe cruelty, the curiosity of a child playing at being a creator. Even when she hates, she does it with whimsy."
