Department of Art Sponsors October 18 Lecture by Croatian Artist Nika Radić

nikaradicIn her video works, multimedia installations, and photographs, Croatian artist Nika Radić focuses on the subjects of communication and the ways art can document reality. She often chooses particular moments that everyone can experience daily, but is interested in how different people interpret it in their own individual way and how they become staged once they are presented in the context of art.

Radić, visiting artist-in-residence from October 13 to November 18, will lecture on her work “Daily Spectacle” on Tuesday, October 18, at 3 pm in Room 220 of the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Arts Center as part of the CEC ArtsLink Residencies Program hosted by the Department of Art.

Born in Zagreb, the artist graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts with a degree in sculpture and has also earned a degree in art history from the University of Vienna. Radić has exhibited in numerous shows internationally, most recently “At Home” (2015/2016) in the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb and a mid-career retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina in Novi Sad (2009). She also co-curated the show “Something with Performance” in KuLe in Berlin (2014).

The Ingram Studio Arts Center is located at 1204 25th Avenue South and Garland Avenue on the Vanderbilt campus. For more information, contact the Department of Art at 615.343.7241 or vesna.pavlovic@vanderbilt.edu.
