Didi Dunphy - "Art Is a Verb, So Let's Do It" @ Lamar Dodd School of Art, room S150

A former visiting scholar and professor in the contemporary and digital media arts at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, Didi Dunphy works as an independent curator in partnership with regional art museums. She will give the Torrance Lecture, sponsored by the Torrance Center for Creativity and Talent Development in the College of Education.

In the curatorial field, she manages and designs exhibits for the Gallery at Hotel-Indigo-Athens and the Indigo’s GlassCube artist residency and project space. Dunphy currently serves as the program supervisor at the Lyndon House Arts Center, the civic arts campus dedicated to incorporating visual art and arts education with the mission of enriching the community of Athens and beyond.

Dunphy’s creative practice lies within the intersection of performative participation and playful collaboration that extends past the studio to Dunphy’s teaching, curating, and art directing. Using invitational art activities, available technology, and conceptual rigor, Dunphy develops situations of social learning and community building, all with a smart, witty aesthetic. In this lecture, she will discuss her arts engagement from the design line of recess inspired objects, her time-based art teaching style, and her thoughtful exhibition curation.

Refreshments will be served.
