Logan Lecture: Ernesto Neto
The modern and contemporary art department and DAM Contemporaries presents the final fall Logan Lecture featuring Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto. Neto is internationally known for blurring the boundaries between artwork and viewer. Often using unconventional materials on a grand scale, Neto invites visitors into immersive and fantastical multi-sensory environments. Neto’s works encourages visitors to slow down and recognize their body within a work of art, and in effect the visitor completes the artwork. One such work from the DAM’s permanent collection is Walking in Venus Blue Cave, 2001, currently on view for the first time at the Denver Art Museum in the exhibition Material World.
The lecture will begin at 7 pm in the Sharp Auditorium at the Denver Art Museum’s Frederic C. Hamilton Building. Doors open at 6:15 pm.
Tickets are $8 students and DAM volunteers, $12 DAM members and artists, $15 others.
Sponsored by Vicki and Kent Logan and DAM Contemporaries, a DAM support group.
