Distinguished artists discuss their work.

Artist Talk: Mark Manders

Dr. Jeffrey Grove, the DMA’s Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, discusses the work of artist Mark Manders, who creates mysterious and uncanny sculptural tableaux, inviting the viewer to “enter the world of objects and matter and find poetry in it . . . and to know how poorly we normally see our daily life.”  The lecture is presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Mark Manders: Parallel Occurrences/Documented Assignments
