Artist Talk: Lisa Hoke: Fleeting Chroma

Thursday, October 18, 6:30 pm, Chiego Lecture Hall


Sculptor Lisa Hoke uses found materials in her large, brightly colored wall and window works, creating joyous, swirling compositions from plastic cups, cereal boxes, six-pack holders, pinwheels, and other everyday objects. Working in her New York studio, Hoke selects materials from color-sorted bins of salvage and arranges items on the floor through an intuitive working process. Titled “The future ain’t what it used to be,” the installation was commissioned by the McNay to initiate a new series of wall works in the Stieren Center for Exhibition’s AT&T Lobby. The title is a nod to baseball player Yogi Berra’s paradoxical prediction, as well as to the installation’s ephemeral images of consumer excess.
