Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Lecture by Catherine Wagner Photographs and Public Projects
Thursday, March 29, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Free and open to the public.  Reception to follow.

Catherine Wagner is an artist who works with elements of contemporary society and transforms them into conceptual images that investigate culture.  For over thirty years she has been a keen observer of the built environment, examining institutions of learning and knowledge, such as art museums and science labs, as well as the ways we construct our cultural identity. Ms. Wagner’s process involves the investigation of what art critic David Bonetti calls ‘the systems people create, our love of order, our ambition to shape the world, the value we place on knowledge, and the tokens we display to express ourselves.'”
