The MFA in Applied Craft and Design welcomes Allyson Mitchell as part of the 2012-2013 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Allyson Mitchell is a maximalist artist working predominantly in sculpture, installation, and film. Since 1997, Mitchell has been melding feminism and pop culture to play with contemporary ideas about sexuality, autobiography, and the body, largely through the use of reclaimed textile and abandoned craft. Her work has exhibited in galleries and festivals across Canada, the US, Europe and East Asia. She is an assistant Professor in the School of Women’s Studies at York University.
This lecture is co-sponsored with the PNCA Sculpture Department.
