Renowned artist and printmaker Lynne Avadenka discusses how the philosophical and physical presence of the book has influenced her art: as a printer of limited edition artist’s books and as an artist working in a variety of media. She says, "I continually seek the complete work that contains both the beauty of gesture and a core of meaning."
Her related exhibit, "Language Comes After Artist: The Work of Lynne Avadenka" will be on display.
Avadenka is the 2013 Jill S. Harris Visiting Artist at the Institute for the Humanities. An established book artist from Detroit who has had her own one-woman press for 25 years, she is a recent recipient of the Kresge Award and an inaugural fellow at the American Academy in Jerusalem.

This lecture takes place April 16, 12:30 - 2:00 p.m. at the Institute for the Humanitites, 202 S. Thayer.
