Sculptor Hirschhorn to discuss work, Feb. 28
Posted February 21, 2007; 11:41 p.m.
Sculptor and installation artist Thomas Hirschhorn will present an illustrated lecture about his work at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28, in the Stewart Film Theater, 185 Nassau St.
Hirschhorn is known for his sprawling installations on street corners and in galleries around Europe, constructed from common items such as aluminum foil, duct tape, cardboard and plastic wrap. For many years, he has created outdoor "altars" dedicated to his personal heroes, such as artists Piet Mondrian and Otto Freundlich and writers Ingeborg Bachmann and Raymond Carver.
Hirschhorn lives and works in Paris. His talk is part of the John Pozzi '78 Lecture Series sponsored by the Program in Visual Arts.
