Lin Tianmiao is one of only a handful of Chinese women artists of her generation, born in the 1960s, to have emerged during the 1990s when the Chinese art world was gaining substantial international recognition. Her works over the past 20 years are as much about her personal journey as an artist as they are about a desire to articulate broader social issues.
Her work in installation, sculpture, photography, and video has been included in numerous international exhibitions. The DAM’s current exhibition Material World includes one of her seminal works, Initiator, 2004, along with two silk-wrapped photographic works, Seeing Shadow No. 12 and No. 20, both 2007.
The lecture will begin at 7:30 pm in the Sharp Auditorium at the Denver Art Museum’s Frederic C. Hamilton Building.
Tickets are $8 students, $12 DAMC members and artists, $15 DAM members, $18 others.
For current DAM Contemporaries members only: a special three-lecture package is available, including Kent Monkman (Oct. 16), Lin Tianmiao (Oct. 23) and Margarita Cabrera (Nov. 6). Click here for package information.
