Lecture by Josiah McElheny

Friday, April 4, 2008, 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Kane Hall, University of Washington Campus
$10 members / $15 general / $12 students and seniors

Josiah McElheny makes installations and discrete sculptures that explore crucial moments in the development of modernity, its visual and theoretical undercurrents. His interest in the history of modern science finds its fullest expression in The Last Scattering Surface, a vivid, tangible model of the Big Bang. In celebration of the exhibition’s opening, McElheny will discuss The Last Scattering Surface and the relationships between concepts such as history, fiction, and memory at play in his work.
