Media and Sound Artist John Henry Blatter Artist Lecture this Friday
Watkins is pleased to announce an artist lecture by Media and Sound Artist John Henry Blatter on Friday Sept. 11th at 9am, in the main theater. Blatter’s diverse background includes national and international exhibitions, residencies at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art and Vermont Studio Center, and a Jacob Javits Fellowship. In addition, he also served as Editor-in-Chief of Daily Constitutional, a publication for the artist’s voice. Blatter will be giving a talk about his most recent work, which whimsically staggers on the boundary between lecture and performance.
Blatter lives and works in Richmond, Virginia, where he received his MFA in Sculpture & Extended Media from Virginia Commonwealth University. Blatter continues to produce audio installations and video works that explore topics ranging from the struggle to define and understand self identity, the anxieties and fears of how others perceive us, to the perception of an individual’s facade and how they relate as an individual in a society.
