Argentine natives Dolores Zinny and Juan Maidagan, who currently live and work in Berlin, have exhibited internationally and are the recipients of the prestigious DAAD, Guggenheim and Pollock Krasner Awards.  Numerous scholarly catalogues also have been produced on their work.  Most recently their site-specific art projects have been featured at the Steirischer Herbst Festival in Graz, the 7th Gwangju Biennale in Korea, The Generali Foundation in Vienna, and the 50th Venice Biennale.

This first installment of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series is in conjunction with Cabo Nombre, a solo exhibition by the duo and on display at the University Art Galleries through March 9.  Admission to the galleries are free and open to the public.

This event is part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series (VALS) in the Department of Art.  Organized by graduate students, VALS invites a slate of visiting artists and scholars relevant to graduate students' own research and practice.
