Artist Lecture: Josiah McElheny
Josiah McElheny has grafted a distinguished art career out of two far-flung strands of contemporary art practice: conceptual art and the studio glass movement. Deploying the most sophisticated and virtuoso glass-working techniques, he makes installations and discrete sculptures that explore crucial moments in the development of modernity, its visual and theoretical undercurrents. The Last Scattering Surface, the title of an enormous spherical sculpture composed of gleaming metal and glass, continues the artists investigation, joining it with the science of the Big Bang.

Since debuting his first major installation work An Historical Anecdote About Fashion at the Henry in 1999, McElheny has gone on to mount several acclaimed exhibitions and received many awards for his work, most notably a MacArthur genius grant in 2006.  He will discuss his current exhibition at the Henry as well as the relationship between concepts such as history, fiction, and memory at play in his work.
