This first conversation in the summer guest lecture series is with artist Rachel Lachowicz.
Rachel is an artist and professor at Claremont Graduate University. She is known for turning her witty eye on the masculine-centric world of Modernism and for making radical incursions into the canon of art history by reconfiguring famous works. She explores the relationship of identity and the politics of mark making, predominately through the use of cosmetics.
Rachel received her BFA from the California Institute of the Arts. A recipient of the Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, her work has been featured in national and international exhibitions at venues such as the MOMA - New York, Institute of Contemporary Arts - London, and MOCA - Los Angeles.
