Penny W. Stamps Speaker Series Presents Antony Gormley: Making Space
Antony Gormley's sculptures, installations and public artworks investigate the relationship of the human body to space. His work has developed through a critical engagement with both his own body and those of others to confront fundamental questions of where human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos. Gormley's work has been widely exhibited throughout the UK and internationally including at the Venice Biennale and Documenta 8. He was awarded the Turner Prize, the South Bank Prize for Visual Art and made an Officer of the British Empire (OBE). He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects, an Honorary Doctor of the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Trinity and Jesus Colleges, Cambridge. Established with the generous support of UM School of Art and Design alumna Penny W. Stamps, the Stamps Speaker Series brings respected emerging and established artists/designers from a broad spectrum of media to the School to conduct a public lecture and engage with students, faculty, and the larger University and Ann Arbor communities. Co-sponsored by the UM Museum of Art. Additional support is provided by Michigan Radio. Events in the Penny Stamps series are always free of charge and open to the public.
