William King Museum’s Fantastic Mechanics Sculptor Sean Pace To Lecture at ETSU
Start Date: 3/27/2013Start Time: 3:00 PM
End Date: 3/27/2013End Time: 4:30 PM

Event Description

In coordination with the exhibition Fantastic Mechanics Sean Pace and Robert Sulkin, William King Museum presents the artists lectures in collaboration with The 1912 Gallery at Emory & Henry College and the East Tennessee State University’s Department of Art & Design - Sculpture Program through the Slocumb Galleries.

Sean Pace will present at the Art Annex, ETSU Campus on Wednesday, March 27 from 3-4:30 p.m. while Sulkin will speak at Emory & Henry College’s Board of Visitors Lounge on Tuesday, March 26 at 7:30 p.m.

Sean Pace of Asheville, North Carolina, is an imaginative engineer in the studio. He creates mixed-media sculptures that often have a complex network of motors and gears. With human intervention, they can be set into motion and facilitate surprising activities such as painting an abstract picture or shooting a rubber chicken. Robert Sulkin concocts elaborate readymade sculptures, then photographs them as still lifes in black and white, some with mathematic formulas and other notations superimposed on the final image. These document the musings of a fictional inventor trying to devise solutions for the world’s complex problems. To different ends, the fantastical machines of Pace and Sulkin invoke absurdity and conjure magic.

            The Art Annex is located along Seehorn Drive, ETSU campus, Johnson City, TN. Emory & Henry College is located at Exit 26 along I-81 at Emory, VA.
