The Pomona College Art Department is pleased to present an artist talk by Andrea Zittel. This free and public lecture is courtesy of the Anne Abel Pinkel Lectureship in Visual Arts.
Andrea Zittel has used sculptural practices in relation to creating functional objects for Utopian living. Textiles have played a huge role in Zittel’s work and much of the sculptural works are made by weaving on multiple and different kinds of looms. The work from the Parallel Planar Series is rooted in Russian Constructivism with its bold planes of solid color reminiscent of abstract paintings. According to Zittel, “The works ultimately reflect contemporary culture’s double-edged attraction to consumable art objects” in that we desire to incorporate these objects into our daily living, but also want these status objects to define us culturally.
