ArtNow! with Lilly McElroy
Playful/ Violent Gestures
Thursday, January 4 6pm-7pm
MOCA Tucson artist-in-residence Lilly McElroy will discuss the way aggression, gender, and the American landscape inform her artistic practice. McEloy grew up in Southern Arizona amongst cowboys riding bulls, coyotes howling on moonlit nights, beautiful sunsets, and vicious brawls. McElroy’s artistic practice translates those experiences and clichés into epic photographs and playfully antagonistic videos. McElroy received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BFA from the University of Arizona. Her work has been exhibited interna- tionally, in venues including The Indianapolis Museum of Art, Figge Art Museum, Southern Exposure, and Rick Wester Fine Art.
Art Now! gives you the opportunity to engage with wildly disparate practices collectively known as “the art of our time” during this playful lecture series. All lectures are FREE for MOCA members, non-members $10. Admission includes light snacks and refreshments.
