The Intermedia MFA program is excited to announce the start of their Spring 2018 visiting artist lectures series, known as Tuesdays at the IMRC. This year’s visiting artist roster promises the community a robust season of contemporary artists from across the country and around the world.
Our second event on February 6th at 7:00pm is with Hope Ginsburg, giving a faculty presentation in the IMRC APPE space.
Hope Ginsburg has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as MoMA PS1, MASS MoCA, Wexner Center for the Arts, Kunst-Werke Berlin, Contemporary Art Center Vilnius, Baltimore Museum of Art and SculptureCenter. Ginsburg’s pedagogical project Sponge (2006–2016) was the focus of solo exhibitions at Solvent Space in Richmond, VA (2008) and CUE Art Foundation (2011), which was accompanied by a catalog. In 2010, her Sponge HQ opened at the Anderson Gallery at Virginia Commonwealth University, where it was sited for six years. A 2011 Art Matters Grant enabled her to learn to scuba dive so that she could see the sponges in their reef habitats. Ginsburg’s 2013 project for the 9th Mercosul Biennial in Porto Alegre, Brazil took inspiration from that investigation.
