As some of you are aware, Scott Chamberlin was welcomed in mid-February as part of the Department of Design's 2009 Artist in Residence programme as Visiting Professor.
Scott has has taken sabbatical in 2009 from his role at the University of Colorado's Graduate Ceramics programme, benchmarked as one of the top ten ceramics departments in the United States.
Scott is a recent recipient of support from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and National Endowment for the Arts. His ongoing ceramics practice has received significant exposure through a major retrospective exhibition, 'Scott Chamberlin, Twelve Years' at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver.
Following on from Sue Wake's reminder yesterday, Scott will be kicking off the ScALA lecture series this Thursday 12 March at 12.45 – 1.45pm in Room 001-2075 (Lecture Theatre 1). This will be our first formal opportunity to hear about recent aspects of Scott's practice, in particular his sculpted garden projects in Portugal.
If you are unable to make this lecture, Scott will be speaking again as part of the Communiqué ’09 seminar series at the School of Architecture and Planning, University of Auckland on Tuesday 31 March, 12:00 – 1:00pm, Level 3 exhibition studio, Building 421, 26 Symonds Street, Auckland.
From his studio located in Building 76, Scott is currently making work for exhibitions planned for Objectspace and Snowhite Gallery in mid-2009, with dates to be confirmed shortly.
