Mathew Cerletty in conversation with Lucy Kim in Boston University’s Tuesday Night MFA Lecture Series Boston University
Room 410, 808 Commonwealth Avenue
Brookline, MA 02446
Tuesday, October 29, 7:30 pm bu.edu
Hosted by the graduate programs in Painting and Sculpture at Boston University, the Tuesday Night MFA Lecture series brings practicing artists to campus to present their work. All lectures are free and open to the public.
Mathew Cerletty (CFA’02) utilizes a hyper-realistic approach to painting that marries the quotidian and the surreal within a range of motifs and subjects. While an undergraduate at Boston University, Cerletty developed the ability to carefully paint the figure in the academic, representational mode. Today, he has developed a practice in which virtuosic yet slightly uncanny depictions of human subjects, corporate logos, and domestic objects are rendered in high-key color and with flat precision. Pervading Cerletty’s paintings is a deadpan sense of humor tempered by a disarming sincerity towards his seemingly banal subjects.
His work has been exhibited in museums including Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego; and at galleries including Rivington Arms, Team Gallery, Plum and Poe in New York, and the Boston University Art Galleries. He is represented by Office Baroque in Brussels, Belgium and Standard in Oslo, Norway.
Lucy Kim is an Assistant Professor of Painting at Boston University. She received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from the Yale School of Art. She is the recipient of the 2017 James and Audrey Foster Prize and the 2015 Boston Artadia Award. She was a fellow at the Yale Norfolk Summer Program and the MacDowell Colony, a participant at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and an artist-in-residence at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Her work has been exhibited at the ICA Boston, Fitchburg Museum of Art, Lisa Cooley, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Institute of Fine Arts-NYU, and Galerie Pact, among others, and her work is in the collection of the Kadist Foundation, Paris, and the ICA Boston. She was a founding member of the artist collaborative kijidome, which received the 2015 Foster Prize. Her work has been reviewed by the Boston Globe, Brooklyn Rail, Artforum.com, ArtNews, Kaleidoscope, and Big Red & Shiny.

Alex Da Corte creates vibrant and immersive large-scale installations that include wall-based works, sculptures, and videos. Colorful and humorous, his work combines personal narrative, art-historical references, pop-culture characters, and the glossy aesthetics of commercial advertising to explore the absurdity and psychological complexity of the images and stories that pervade contemporary American life.

Nicolas Party “Arches” M WOODS
November 30, 2018 – February 24, 2019
Opening in November 2018, M WOODS presents a solo exhibition by Swiss artist Nicolas Party. Working across painting, pastel, sculpture, video and installation, Party is renowned for a deep sense of site specificity and temporality in his projects, which often feature hand-painted murals that exist on gallery walls only for the duration of an exhibition. Within these painted environments sit two and three dimensional works which, through a style and colour system unique to the artist, offer a contemporary take on traditional subjects such as still life, portraiture, landscape and the sculptural bust.
Party’s exhibition at M WOODS will be his first at a non-profit institution in Asia and his largest to date, bringing together recent works with a suite of new sculptures and wallpaintings created on site at the museum.
