Matthew Ritchie Artist Lecture
Please join Montserrat College of Art for a free special lecture by acclaimed artist Matthew Ritchie, Montserrat’s 2016 Commencement Speaker, Thursday May 12.
6:30 – 8 p.m. Public Lecture, The Cabot Performing Arts Center, 286 Cabot Street, Beverly, MA 01915
Ritchie is a multimedia artist whose installations challenge established modes of contemporary art making and provides an inspiring model. At a time when information becomes available at ever-expanding rates, Ritchie’s work both provocatively highlights that capacity and innovatively redefines visualization, installation, and modes of connectivity among a compelling range of sources.
Matthew Ritchie was born in London, England, in 1964, and lives and works in New York. He received a BFA from Camberwell School of Art, London, and attended Boston University. His artistic mission has been no less ambitious than an attempt to represent the entire universe and the structures of knowledge and belief that we use to understand and visualize it.
