Wen-ti Tsen, the Knaster Artist-in-Residence at Tufts University, will give a public lecture in which he discusses the role of public art in the politics of immigration in contemporary society, and the different ways that his art and art practices communicate immigrant experiences.
Wen-ti Tsen is a painter and public artist. He was born in China and grew up in Europe before coming to the U.S. to study painting at the Boston Museum School. Since the mid-1970s, he has been engaged in making art that explores cultural connections: personal paintings and installations, large-scale public art sculptures, and community organization to express social issues via a variety of art forms.
His visit is made possible by the Martha and Nat R. Knaster Charitable Trust, the Center for the Humanities at Tufts, and the Consortium of Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora.
Followed by reception and tour of Tsen’s exhibits in Slater Concourse Gallery and Remis Sculpture Court.
