Following Bennett’s 5 p.m. talk in Miller Hall 138 there will be a reception in the Western Gallery from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Both events are free and open to the public.
Bennett is self-taught in the tradition of seriography and is best known for making large-scale silkscreen paintings that employ pop culture iconography to recontextualize historical narratives. His subject matter often spans cultural icons, historical occurrences, and political figures. In this talk Knowledge will discuss each of the series represented in Road to Damascus as well as discussing his career and path as a working artist living in Los Angeles, CA.
