Olivia Booth lecture at CGU on March 23, 2011

This coming Wednesday is the next installation of the Claremont  Graduate University Artist Lecture Series. Olivia Booth, artist and adjunct professor at Woodbury University, will be coming to Albrecht Auditorium at 4:30pm.

Although these CGU lectures are open to the public, they tend to be directed to the artists. An emerging artist herself, Booth’s sculptural paintings are made from paint and glass. Hopefully she’ll be talking a bit about her most recent pieces currently showing in the 1922 Kings Road House in Los Angeles. The home, designed by contemporary architecture icon R.M. Schindler, is opened every year to one artist and one architect who collaborate to interpret the landmark  home in a new way. This year the artist is Olivia Booth. That exhibit opened March 5 and, if you’re interested, there will be a “curator and artist walk-through” on April 2. See www.makcenter.org for more details.

Booth’s bio from the MAK Center press release:

“Olivia Booth has lived in Los Angeles for the past ten years, where she teaches and makes art. She has taught at USC and Woodbury University, where she currently teaches in Foundation and Interior Architecture. She has had two solo shows at Mandarin gallery in Chinatown, LA, and has been included in group shows at Mandarin, Marc Foxx, Claremont College in Los Angeles, the Las Vegas Museum of Art and Am Nuden Da, in London, and has published in Material Press. Her work has been written about in the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly and Artforum.  She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Cornell University with a BA in Comparative Literature and a BFA in Painting, and later received an MFA from Art Center College of Design.”

See you there.
