FSU Art Assistant Professor Rob Duarte will be visiting the University of Maine this month as a part of “Tuesday’s at the IMRC”, an artist lecture series, hosted by the Innovative Media Research and Commercialization Center (IMRC).
The lecture will take place at the IMRC Center, on October 27th at 7:00p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Duarte’s work is an exploration of the hidden politics embedded in all technology. His portfolio is diverse and consists of a variety of mediums: from software, video, and sound, to steel, and cotton. Duarte’s work has been exhibited at the EFA Project Space in New York City, the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and the New Children’s Museum in San Diego.
Duarte will also host a workshop for the UMaine community on October 28th at 3:00p.m., also at the IMRC Center. Participants in this hands-on workshop will learn simple techniques for realizing audiovisual, interactive, and responsive works of art through the use of free software and a low-cost microcontroller board.
This series is sponsored by the Intermedia MFA Program, The Department of New Media, the University of Maine Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lectures Series, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and Correll Professorship in New Media.
