The MFA in Visual Studies program is excited to welcome artist and musician Becca Albee for a lecture on their work and practice as part of the 2018 Visiting Artist Lecture Series.
Becca Albee is a multimedia artist known for her photo-based conceptual art. Albee is a veteran of the 1990s “riot grrl” scene, a loose affiliation of women artists, writers, and musicians who merged punk rock’s rebellious DIY ethos with a commitment to feminism. Whether she’s creating a sound installation based on figure skating champion Dorthoy Hamil, revisiting the scandalous fake memoirs of silent actress Joan Lowell, or juxtaposing photographs of flowers with newspaper clippings, feminism remains one of Albee’s central commitments. Albee has exhibited widely in New York City and collaborated with punk rocker and activist Kathleen Hanna in a two women show at Fleisher/Ollman in Philadelphia. She was a 2009-10 LMCC Workspace resident.
The MFA in Visual Studies Visiting Artist Lecture Series brings artists, scholars, designers, curators, and critics from around the globe to engage with students and the wider community in a variety of formats, including lectures, conversations, panel discussions, group critiques, workshops, and studio visits. These visiting art practitioners contribute to, challenge, and expand the academic and artistic discourse at PNCA, extending the opportunities for instruction and learning.
