The next episode of Studio Sessions is live with guest Cathy McLaurin, an artist whose work continues to push the boundaries of what can be considered art. Listen to her talk about her work by following the link below.
Cathy earned a BA in Studio Art from Meredith College in 1989, and an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 2013. Her recent projects often involve approaching activities or objects that wouldn’t typically be thought of as art from an artistic viewpoint. One example where she does this is in documenting the sale of her father’s antique gun collection, then compiling and presenting the experience for others to experience all the history and personal meaning involved in the process. In another project she reproduces a childhood photograph of herself and secretly hides copies of it for people to happen upon and be confronted with a glimpse into the past that causes them to wonder about the lives of the people in the image.
