UNM Art Museum, Center for the Arts, UNM Main Campus, Albuquerque, NM
Presented by: Bill Gilbert
About The Presentation:
Lobo Living Room travels to the UNM Art Museum to present an evening lecture on the distinctive pottery from the small village of Mata Ortiz, in Casas Grandes, Mexico. UNM Distinguished Professor of Art and Ecology, Bill Gilbert, will discuss the effect the potters of Mata Ortíz have had on the Ceramics and the Land Arts of the American West programs at UNM through an examination of the role of personal creativity and communal support in the development of the art movement in the village. Gilbert will look at the influence of ancient Mimbres and Casas Grandes traditions on contemporary styles and discuss the evolution of personal creativity within the context of family and neighborhood in Mata Ortíz.
Bill Gilbert completed his undergraduate work in studio art at Swarthmore College and Pitzer College. He received his MFA from the University of Montana in 1978 and has served on the faculty in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of New Mexico since 1988 where he holds the Lannan Chair as director of the Land Arts of the American West program. Gilbert is co-founder of the new Art & Ecology emphasis in studio art.
