Sam Fox School Announces Fall Public Lecture Series | Source

Eyes emerge from an empty background. A young woman gazes into the distance, a smiling skull on her shoulder. Thick lines of paint, reminiscent of both graffiti and thought balloons, invade the scene.

In his stop-motion cartoon animation “A Portrait of Berenice Sarmiento Chávez” (2018), Los Angeles artist Hugo Crosthwaite traces the journey of an immigrant from Tijuana, Mexico, to the United States. The work, which won first prize in the fifth triennial Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, is currently featured in “The Outwin: American Portraiture Today”, shown this fall at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum at Washington University in St. Louis.

On Saturday, September 11, Crosthwaite will discuss her artistic practice at a free online conference with Taína Caragol, co-curator of “The Outwin” as well as curator for painting and sculpture and Latinx art and history at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, which is hosting the competition. Presented by the Kemper Art Museum’s ‘In Conversation’ series, the talk also marks the start of the fall public lecture series, sponsored by the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at WashU.

In total, the public lecture series will include 16 virtual and in-person events featuring nationally and internationally renowned artists, architects, designers and academics.
