Visiting Artist Lecture with Mark Burns

5:30pm to 6:30pm

Location: 

Ceramics Program, 224 Western Avenue, Allston, MA 02134

Presented by: Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard

Join us in welcoming Mark Burns to the Boston area as our 2016-2017 Artist in Residence at the Ceramics Program. Mark will take us on a visual journey of over four decades of "making strange marriages between disparate sources. Mythologies, manifest spiritual tropes, historical truth and historical lies, sexuality, television, movies, music, literature, and the ravenous beast we call pop culture." We urge you to attend this lively talk by a true legend of contemporary ceramics.
