Artist Talk • “…usually outside and accessible to all”: On Public Markings in Three Acts

April 25, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Using film and sculpture, artist Masha Vlasova will explore the shifting social, political, and historical roles of monuments, public sculptures, and yard art in Central Asia and the United States. Her talk will address three modes of public marking within an urban space where previously distinct boundaries become imprecise: Lenin’s monument in Kyrgyzstan, the public works by the American sculptor John Henry, and one man’s exquisite yard art collection.

Masha Vlasova is an interdisciplinary artist and educator. She holds an MFA from Yale School of Art. Her photographs, sculptures, and films have been exhibited and screened at Smack Mellon, Anthology Archives, Abrons Arts Center, and the Border Project Gallery in New York, among others. Her curatorial project “Women Filmmakers at the Intersection of Documentary, Video Art, and Avant Garde,” premiered at Indiana University Cinema in fall of 2018. She is currently teaching Studio Art at the University of North Texas.
This talk is free and open to the public.
