Artist to lecture at exhibit in Pattee Library

March 23, 2005

New York artist Brian Conley will give a public lecture at 11:45 a.m. Monday, March 28, in Foster Auditorium of Pattee Library, University Park. His exhibition, a component of the show "Decipherment of Linear X," which was partially produced at Penn State and shown at Pierogi, N.Y., last October, will be installed in the display cases outside of the Foster Auditorium, Pattee Library, from March 23 through May 23. Conley's artistic practice operates along the divide between science and art, using scientific research and political inquiry to construct new morphologies that challenge perceptions of humanity, nature, technology and consciousness. His work ranges from radio performance to sculptural and sound-based installations with the appearance of anatomical models or artifacts from some future time. This lecture is co-sponsored by the University Libraries and is part of the School of Visual Arts' Anderson Endowment Lecture Series.
