Artist Talk: Guen Montgomery

Artist Talk: Guen Montgomery

Join us on Zoom for the Art Department’s fall lecture series. Guen Montgomery is obsessed with the ordinary things of the material world. Her work looks at the life of objects, the longing to collect and acquire, and how possessions collaborate in our performances of identity. Materially, Montgomery’s work is located in the intersections between printmaking, performance, and sculpture. Recent pieces look critically at the relationship between possessions, historic privilege, and whiteness. Montgomery has work in multiple public collections including the Centre for Art and Design in Churchill Australia, and Mushashino Art University, Tokyo, Japan. In 2019, Montgomery started a new body of work during a residency at the Vermont Studio Center that will be exhibited in upcoming shows in St. Louis, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. She currently teaches at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where she lives surrounded by ordinary treasures with her wife, dog, and three cats. Learn more at guenmontgomery.com.
