Artist Talk | Strauss Bourque-LaFrance: Pretzel Logic
Mon | 7 pm
In this new artist talk, entitled Pretzel Logic, Strauss Bourque-LaFrance will introduce his studio process through a text/list that includes ideas, stories, notes, quoted material, sound, images and nonsense.
Strauss Bourque-LaFrance lives and works in Brooklyn. His interdisciplinary practice combines painting, sculpture, and performance, and merges disparate fields and influences, from interior and stage design to film and comics, exploring desire, memory, and estrangement in contemporary domestic and commercial culture. Recent solo shows include Rachel Uffner Gallery, New York; KANSAS, New York; Courtney Blades, Chicago; Bodega, Philadelphia/New York. His work has been included in exhibitions at ICA Philadelphia, SculptureCenter, New York; Contemporary Austin Jones Center, Texas; Abrons Art Center, New York; Johannes Vogt Gallery, New York; Vox Populi, Philadelphia; Crane Arts, Philadelphia; Extra Extra, Philadelphia; Clifford Gallery, Colgate University, New York; and Porch Projects, Washington D.C., among others. He received his BFA from Hampshire College, Amherst, MA; and his MFA from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA.
