First Friday Lecture
Corin Hewitt: Weavings, Performance #2 (Portland, Oregon)
May 1, 2009
11 am–noon
Plestcheeff Auditorium

Marisa Sánchez, Assistant Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, discusses the 75 photographs created by Corin Hewitt in a public studio space in Portland, Oregon, in September 2007. His ephemeral still lifes, composed of organic and inorganic objects and materials, were arranged and then photographed on vibrant fabrics. The compositions explore concepts of decay, memory, loss and preservation.
