Artist Jonathan Monaghan will present a lecture entitled “Fear and Desire in a Digital Age,” Monday, March 6, at 2:30 p.m., at the University of Hartford in the Harry Jack Gray Center’s Wilde Auditorium, as part of the Hartford Art School’s Auerbach Lecture Series. The talk is free and open to the public, and is made possible by the Beatrice Fox Auerbach Foundation Fund of the Hartford Art School Endowment, Inc.
Monaghan works with animation, prints and sculpture. His works are dreamlike explorations of fear and desire, critically examining issues surrounding wealth, consumerism, authority, and technology. Past exhibitions and screenings of his work include The Sundance Film Festival, The Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Hirshhorn Museum, and The British Film Institute. His work has been featured in several media outlets, including The Washington Post, VICE, The Wall Street Journal, and The Village Voice. Monaghan is represented by bitforms gallery in New York and Galerie 22,48m2 in Paris.
The Auerbach Lecture Series brings visiting artists to campus twice each semester for one or two days, and during that time they deliver public lectures and spend time in the art studios critiquing student work.
