With levity and a great deal of wit, Meg Cranston investigates the intersections between individual and shared experience and how imagery and objects acquire meaning in our culture. With an eye equally enamored of color theory, design, fashion, and supermarket advertising, she makes energetic collages pairing found imagery with monochromatic abstract forms. Her work was recently featured in Made in L.A. 2012 at the Hammer Museum and in exhibitions at the Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Galerie Michael Janssen, Berlin; Municipal Art Gallery, Los Angeles; and Gallery Brandstrup, Oslo.
The UCLA Department of Art’s visiting lecture series is made possible through the generous support of the William D. Feldman Family Endowed Art Lecture Fund.
