Katrín Sigurdardóttir

San Francisco Art Institute, Lecture Hall

800 Chestnut Street, San Francisco, CA 94133

September 29, 7:30 pm

Monday, September 29, San Francisco Art Institute welcomes Katrín Sigurdardóttir as part of the school’s Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series. Sigurdardóttir, an Icelandic artist working in New York, is known for her large scale sculpture and installation work. These experiments in the creation of space and place reference the objects and scenes of the everyday, maintaining architectural and other visual ties to reality while departing in distinctly otherworldly directions. Her interventions into existing spaces reconfigure, distort, and reinvigorate visual and spatial relationships in similarly magical ways.

The lecture begins Monday, September 29, at 7:30 pm.
