Shirley Tse

Jul 2 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM


This event is free and open to the public


The Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies welcomes artist & designer Shirley Tse for a discussion of her work as part of the 2014 Summer Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Los Angeles–based artist Shirley Tse has long concerned herself with the polysemous nature of things. In the past, Tse has used synthetic polymer (plastic) to address the concept of multiplicities and competing ideologies. In her new work, Tse utilizes “Quantum Shirley” as a generative conceptual framework that allows her to produce work on an on-going basis addressing the multi-dimensionality of experience, and the negotiation of realities.

Shirley Tse is also exhibiting at PNCA’s Feldman Gallery + Project Space, Quantum Shirley, showing through August 10, 2014 with an opening reception on July 3 for First Thursday. Tse is an artist-in-residence with PNCA’s Low Residence MFA in Visual Studies program.

PNCA’s Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies Summer 2014 session includes a Summer Lecture series featuring talks by visiting artists that are free and open to the public. With the visiting artists & scholars Low-Res MFA students will participate in a site-specific project retreat at Leland Iron Works, workshops through the Fashioning Cascadia exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, studio visits, critiques, and demonstrations each week throughout the summer session.
