CRITICAL ISSUES IN CONTEMPORARY ART: Sam Lewitt

Thursday, February 21, 2013, 7:00 - 8:50 PM
Free

As part of Art 361, the Henry will host artist Sam Lewitt.

Born 1981 In Los Angeles; Lives and works in New York.

Sam Lewitt’s practice often examines communications systems and technologies, both obsolete and cutting edge, that are central to contemporary life. For the 2012 Biennial, his subject is ferrofluid, a mixture of magnetic particles suspended in liquid that is used in a wide variety of technological applications, including computer hard drives, audio speakers, educational tools, and military aircraft. In the presence of a magnet, ferrofluid coagulates to resemble a solid mass, its contours conforming to the magnetic field yet retaining the plasticity of a liquid.
