Artist Lecture and Q&A with Joe Sola
Join Landmarks, the public art program of The University of Texas at Austin, on Tuesday, March 29 at 4 p.m. for a lecture and Q&A with artist Joe Sola. Featured in the Landmarks Video video art program last November, Sola uses themes of masculinity, sexuality, strength, heroism and violence to investigate, or rather skewer, the art world and its mores. It is not just eyes, but the entire body, or physicality—particularly male—as well as its sociocultural implications that he utilizes, represents and scrutinizes in his art. Joe will discuss his work, motivation and vision as an artist. Free and open to the public.
Sola earned a B.F.A. from the University of Michigan followed by an M.F.A. from the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, California, where he continues to reside.
