American Craft Council Library Salon Series Lecture Objects and Installations: The Work and Residencies of Emily Nachison
Through sculptural objects and installation, artist Emily Nachison investigates the use of story, symbols, and materiality to mythologize natural phenomena, escapism, and the desire for secret knowledge. In the summers of 2014 and 2015, Bullseye Projects invited her to participate in residencies at North Lands Creative Glass in Lybster, Scotland. Working in response to the unique landscape and architecture of Caithness, Scotland, Nachison created a series of projects for the Byre, a new Bullseye Projects exhibition space in Latheronwheel, Scotland. Nachison will discuss her recent residencies and exhibition.
The Library Salon Series is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
