The UNLV Department of Art welcomes Walter Robinson to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art on Thursday, 11/16/17 at 7pm for the Fall Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Influential art writer and postmodern pop art painter Walter Robinson was an integral part of the 1980s New York art world. News editor of Art in America from 1980 — ’96, he co-founded the original ArtNet magazine and the innovative NY art bookstore Printed Matter, Inc. In the ‘80s he was associated with Cindy Sherman, Richard Prince, and other artists from the Pictures Generation. More recently he has held one-man exhibitions of his paintings at galleries in New York and Switzerland. Robinson is based in New York.
The UNLV Visiting Artist Lecture Series features a diverse array of some of the most compelling artists and thinkers working in the art world today. This important program brings both established and emerging artists to campus to discuss their work in public lectures, and to offer individual critiques to our BFA and MFA students. This program has established itself as an invaluable resource for UNLV students and the public alike. The primary mission of the Visiting Artists Lecture Series is to educate, inspire and foster a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art through visual presentations and discourse.
