VOICES IN CONTEMPORARY ART LECTURE SERIES & BOOK CLUB
Connect to significant voices in contemporary art at these FREE events at MAM.
This lecture is presented in conjunction with the Jim and Jane Dew Visiting Artist Lecture Series at the University of Montana School of Art. Slick is the fourth and final resident artist at UM’s MATRIX Press, a collaboration with MAM generously supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Slick is a professor of painting and printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design. He has served on numerous panels, boards, and committees, including the College Art Association Board of Directors and Committee for Diversity Practices. He is the recipient of prestigious awards from the Joan Mitchell and Rockefeller Foundations. Slick’s art is populated by figures that appear transitory, fragmentary, and elusive. He uses what he calls Trickster Theory—humor and deception—to reveal absurdity and dislodge and unpack colonial assumptions about Native Americans.
