An Artist Talk with Emily Culver

April 20, 2 pm4 pm.
Preludes AT draft1
Join us for an artist talk and conversation with Emily Culver! This special event is in conjunction with Culver’s current solo exhibition “PRELUDES,” on view now through April 20, 2024 In the Gallery at Brooklyn Metal Works. Culver will discuss her creative practice, the inspirations that guide her work, and provide an in-depth look at the premise behind PRELUDES. Free and open to the public, this lecture will include a presentation of the works on view followed by a question and answer session to help conclude this incredible exhibition.
Existing primarily as sculpture, objects and jewelry, Culver’s work explores notions of intimacy, (non)functionality, gender and identity through corporeal qualities. Through these works she considers how interactions among objects are interpreted, translated, and mutated by negotiations with the body and anthropocentric tendencies. Culver actively exhibits her creative work nationally and internationally and is the recipient of various awards and residencies, including a 2017 Toby Devan Lewis Fellowship and a 2022 residency at the James Castle House. She holds an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art and is an Assistant Professor of Jewelry and Metalsmithing at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA.
