Community Arts Lecture Series, "And Counting..."
Contemporary artist Nigel Poor will lecture and share images of her work as part of John F Kennedy University, Department of Arts & Consciousness' Community Arts Lecture Series.
Nigel Poor utilizes the written word, photography, sculpture and book arts which incorporate ordinary materials such as lint, hair, fingerprints and dead insects to explore answers to profound questions. And Counting...has evolved over the past ten years. It is an attempt to assert a statement of being and to trace the connection between what things are and what they become---a way of investigating what matters, what counts in life and how we attempt to make a mark.
In the artist's words, "And Counting...is exploring what could be considered a spiritual question about transition. By creating a framework that strives to give an answer to the unanswerable, And Counting...attempts to make sense of the troubling question of how to document life and what is worthy of preservation."
Poor's has exhibited locally and nationally. Her work can be found in the collections of SFMOMA, the M.H. deYoung Museum, The San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. She has received several nationally recognized awards and in 2007 she was the artist in residence at the San Francisco Center for the Book.
