The Visiting Artist Lecture

Thursday, 29 May 2014, 5PM

UC San Diego, Center Hall #119, La Jolla, California 92093

The UC San Diego Department of Visual Arts is pleased to present a lecture by Casey Reas, an artist whose conceptual and minimal works explore ideas through the contemporary lens of software. Reas’s software and images derive from short text instructions explaining processes that define networks. In collaboration with Ben Fry, he created the Processing program language, now used by innumerable artists and designers.

Reas' software, prints, and installations have been featured in over one hundred solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Recent venues include the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Art Institute of Chicago, and recent commissions have been awarded by the Whitney Museum of American Art and the New World Symphony in Miami. Reas is currently an associate professor in the department of Design | Media Arts at the University of California, Los Angeles.
