Scott Patrick Wiener (b. 1977. Baltimore, MD) spent his early life traveling from one military base to another, never spending more than four years in one place at a time. The work he produces is a direct result of an attempt to hold onto time and place – to stabilize it. He proceeds accordingly by using lens-based media to examine peripheral references that surround historic events and objects as a way of reinforcing their presence. He studied at Massachusetts College of Art and Design (BFA, 2001), the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA, 2007), the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Class of 2010) and a completed a 2009-10 DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) Scholarship for Fine Arts in Leipzig, Germany. Currently, he teaches at Brandeis University, Middlesex and Bunker Hill Community Colleges.

He will talk about his work, process and concepts about memory, history, and the implications photographic imagery has for the past as objects in the present.
