Artist's Talk: David Teng Olsen

Meaning-Making


Wednesday, October 25, 2017 - 12:30pm
Davis Museum Lobby

Associate Professor David Teng Olsen will discuss thinking about meaning-making in relationship between works of art on view at the Davis and his installation, as well as his own process of understanding life through art.

David Teng Olsen: Smoked My Head on Yes Waters is an invitational program at the Davis. This program is designed to engage local artists in transforming the dramatic expanse of floor-to-ceiling ground-level windows that articulates the lobby of our signature Rafael Moneo building and its courtyard plaza. The debut feaures a commission by David Teng Olsen, associate professor of art at Wellesley College, based on objects in the permanent collections. Curated by rotation among the Davis curatoriala staff, the first iteration of the Windows project is organized by LIsa Fischman an will remain in place for one year.

Presented with generous support from Wellesley College Friends of Art at the Davis.
