Ft Worth Modern Art Museum: Modern Graduate Series 2011–2012

Jenny Vogel speaks at the Modern on Wednesday, September 28, at 5 pm.

Jenny Vogel is a new media artist, working in photography, video, and performance art. Her work explores the world as viewed through the lenses of contemporary communication technology, the media, and historical preconceptions. She received her MFA from Hunter College, New York City (2003), and is currently an assistant professor of New Media Art in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas. For Modern Graduate Series, Vogel discusses her influences and the underlying themes of her studio practice, such as self-induced voyeurism and the curious history of webcams, the dark beauty of a mediated planet, the failure of capturing the experience of history, and humanity in a prefabricated world.

Attendees receive complimentary admission to the Modern the afternoon of each lecture. Light bites and a cash bar are featured for an hour-long reception immediately following each lecture.
