Talk by "And the Winner Is..." artist Lee Walton
Lee Walton’s work takes many forms- from drawings on paper, game/system based structures, video, web-based performances, public projects, theatrical orchestrations and more. After a two-year affiliation with the Headlands Center for the Arts in Marin, Walton has received many accolades from Museum funded projects (Reykjavik Art Museum of Iceland, Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, SECCA, ICA Boston), public commissions (Art in General, Socrates Sculpture Park, Rhizome at the New Museum of NY, national and international exhibition venues (Island #6, Shanghia, China, Clubs Project Inc., Australia, Ljubljana Museum of Art) and collections (Metropolitan Museum of Art, Martin Z. Margulies Wharehouse). Walton has also lectured extensively on his practice and related subjects. Recent lectures, panel discussions and visits include MIT, Art in General, The New School, Art Institute of Boston, Columbia, Portland State Univerisity and the University of Ulster, Belfast Ireland. Walton holds an MFA in Visual Arts from the California College of the Arts. His drawings are represented by Kraushaar Gallery in NY and his conceptual work is represented by “cwp” (Christopher West Presents). Walton is an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
And the Winner Is... investigates competition, cooperation, and community through a series of artist residencies, curricular interventions, and a massive skee-ball tournament involving all members of the Haverford community: the faculty, students, staff, and visitors. The Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery will serve as the arena for the tournament, which begins March 16th and ends April 20th. Only at the end of the show will its title, And the Winner Is..., be complete.
