Pioneer video artist, conceptualist, photographer, painter, and writer, William Wegman moves fluidly among various media: conceptual works, commissioned magazine shots, videos shown in museums, television segments made for Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live, artists' books portraying nineteenth-century naturalist studies, children's books revealing tongue-in-cheek portraits of town and country life, and photographic "landscapes" employing his Weimaraner muses. His most recent cycle of landscapes combines found scenic souvenir postcards with drawing, collage, and painting. Wegman will discuss the arc of his work from 1970 to the present including painting, drawing, photo, and video.
