The Marywood University Art Department Distinguished Visiting Artist Lecture Series presents a lecture by painter Marcia Hafif on Wednesday October 25 at 4:30 pm. This special event will take place in Multi-Media Room 160 in the Media Center (attached to the Library) at Marywood and will be followed by a reception in the Visual Arts Center. The lecture and reception are free and open to the public.

For more than 40 years Marcia Hafif has worked at the radical edge of the painting language, creating painitngs and installations that embody both a reductive conceptual rigor and an exquistie sensuality. She has exhibited extensively througout Europe and the United States, most recently in Bonn, Munich, Zurich, and Dusseldorf, as well as New York, Philadelphia, and Laguna Beach. Her work is in numerous important permanent collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.

The Marywood Art Department takes great pleasure in hosting this lecture during which Ms. Hafif will show slides of her work and speak about her life and working process. Audience members will have an opportunity to meet the artist at the reception immediately following the lecture. This event is sponsored by the Marywood University Cultural Affairs Committee.

    These events are great opportunities to see, hear, and interact with professional artists. On top of all of that the artists who give these presentations have had phenomenal impacts on art and art history. If you haven’t been to one of these talks and you consider yourself an artist then you haven’t questioned your own belief systems enough or have blinders on that allow you to ignore everything going on around you.
