Meet the Artist: Tracy Templeton

dis-PLACED

Tuesday, April 18, 2017, 5:00pm

College Arts & Humanities Institute

Tracy Templeton, disPLACEDTracy Templeton, Associate Professor of Printmaking at IUB, travelled to Buenos Aires, Argentina, this past summer for a month-long residency at Proyecto Áce, a prestigious artists’ residency focused on print and photographic media. At CAHI, she will discuss her recent series, dis-PLACED, work she developed while at the residency “influenced by current events of the Syrian refugee crisis, travel, migration, and temporal moments.” The work synthesizes a broad interpretation of journey with elements of nature to create an obscure world of beauty as well as a gentle disquiet.

Tracy Templeton became the Head of Printmaking at Indiana University in 2013. Her work has been widely exhibited across the United States and throughout the world, including more than 150 exhibitions in Canada, Mexico, England, France, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, China, Bulgaria, Poland, Russia, Japan, Malaysia, and South Korea. Her prints appear in more than thirty collections worldwide, and her work has been published in more than sixty books, magazines, catalogs, and journals. Templeton’s works and achievements can be found on her website here.

This event is free and open to the public. Join us for a discussion and reception following the talk.
