Studio Arts Program Presents

Tuesday, October 16, 2018
Sam Van Aken
Fisher Studio Arts building, Seminar Room
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Sam Van Aken works beyond traditional modes of art making, crossing artistic genres and disciplines to develop new perspectives on such themes as communication, botany, agriculture, climatology, and the ever-increasing impact of technology. Employing “anti-structures and unknowing as generative processes,” Van Aken’s interventions in the natural and public realm are seen as metaphors that serve as the basis of narrative, sites of place making, and in some cases even become the basis of scientific research.

Van Aken received his undergraduate education in art and communication theory and his MFA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is an associate professor in the School of Art at Syracuse University.
