PUBLIC LECTURE with Julie Schenkelberg
September 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
On Sept 14th, at 6pm, Julie Schenkelberg will host a public lecture about her artistic process, discussing her installations, the process of building them, and the importance of found materials.
PLUG Projects is excited to partner with the Kansas City, Missouri Office of Culture and Creative Services and the Kansas City Design Center as part of the “West Bottoms Reborn,” a project supported by the National Endowment for the Arts Our Town Grant. Plug is pleased to bring internationally recognized artist Julie Schenkelberg to Kansas City. This project is part of a series of public engagements designed to honor the history (and place) of the historic West Bottoms. Incorporating materials from the region as a representation and indicator of site, Schenkelberg will respond to the West Bottoms’ rich history by building a site-specific installation.
Schenkelberg is a 2014 Art Prize recipient in Installation, the recipient of multiple NEA grants, and has been awarded residencies and exhibitions at The Mattress Factory Museum, Art Omi, The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, and the Prosjektrom Normanns residency in Stravanger, Norway among others. With a background in theatrical scenic painting, her mixed media installations are three dimensional compositions of found objects painted and layered to create a collective memory of place. Schenkelberg is represented by and an exhibited artist at Asya Geisberg Gallery in Manhattan.
