1430 Johnson Lane, Eugene, OR, 97403
Peregrine Honig is a curator and internationally collected and exhibited artist who explores the grey areas of contemporary conflicts with sharp wit and a delicate hand. Honig will discuss her studio practice, personal history, and the ideas and processes behind her images linking fairy tales to controversial conversations. Honig's critical exploration of social structures adds light to gender identity troubles, spaces between sexuality and sensuality, and civil rights. She will share her perspectives with UO students in Professor Dorothee Ostmeier's class on "Magic, Uncanny, Surrealistic and Cynical Tales".
Honig's print portfolio, Father Gander (2005-06), in the JSMA's collection, will be on view in the lecture hall. The artist's visit is supported by a JSMA Academic Support Grant, the Oregon Humanities Center's Endowment for Public Outreach in the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities, and the Clark Honors College. Open to the public.
