Mount Royal School of Art would like to invite you to an artist's lecture by artist Andrea Bowers.
Los Angeles multimedia artist Andrea Bowers’ work explores the intersection between activism and art. Her main focus is the necessity of nonviolent protest and civil disobedience in the lives of women. Andrea’s recent work investigates the continued exploitation of the poor and working class. Her intricate photorealist drawings, large-scale graphic works, videos and ephemera pay homage to a multitude of movements and causes; particularly feminism, climate justice, immigrant rights and workers’ rights. She is a proud member of the SEIU local 721 and currently a member of the Bargaining Committee for the Otis College of Art and Design Part-time Faculty Union. She has been teaching in the Otis Graduate Public Practice Program since 2007. Bowers is represented by Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, Andrew Kreps in New York, NY, Capitain Petzel in Berlin, and Kauffman Repetto in Milan. Her work is currently on display at Documenta 14 in Kassel, Germany.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
