Humber Lecture-Fault Lines: Artists in Conversation

Join this conversation with contemporary artists Susie Ganch, Jean Shin, and Kirsten Stolle, all featured in the exhibition Fault Lines: Art and the Environment, as they discuss their relationships to nature and how their artworks explore environmental issues.

Artists

Susie Ganch is a first-generation American artist of Hungarian heritage. She is a sculptor, jeweler, and educator living in Richmond, Virginia, where she is interim chair for the Department of Craft/Material Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. Part of her practice is directing Radical Jewelry Makeover, an international jewelry mining and recycling project that travels across the country and abroad. Issues of waste and cultural habits of consumption are imbued through her work.

Jean Shin was born in Seoul, South Korea, and raised in the US. She works in Brooklyn and Hudson Valley, New York, and is a tenured adjunct professor at Pratt Institute. Shin is known for her large-scale installations and public sculptures. She transforms accumulations of discarded objects into powerful monuments that interrogate our complex relationship between material consumption, collective identity, and community engagement.

Kirsten Stolle was born in Newton, Massachusetts, and currently lives in Asheville, North Carolina. She is a visual artist working in collage, text-based images, and installation. Her research-based practice is grounded in the investigation of agribusiness propaganda, food politics, and biotechnology.
