Artist Talk: Crystal Wagner
Tuesday, October 2, 2018 • 6-7:30 p.m. • Free admission

Crystal Wagner will discuss the evolution of her artistic practice and her distinctive, biomorphic installation work, Traverse, currently on display on the first-floor gallery and the exterior façade of the BCA Center, as well as discuss other recent work spanning different mediums and scales.

Multi-disciplinary artist Crystal Wagner transforms organic and biomorphic designs into colorful prints, sculptures, and sprawling installations comprised of bursting colors and organic forms. Her two and three-dimensional work boasts bright neon hues consisting of distinctive, intricate circular patterns suggestive of the natural world. The artist employs a hybrid approach to printmaking and sculpture, in which she incorporates her screenprints with recycled consumer materials, such as disposable tablecloths, to create textural pieces that are as expansive as they are voluminous. Wagner will create an immense site-specific installation in BCA’s first-floor gallery that grows from floor to ceiling and emerges outside to meander across the exterior façade. This exhibition will be Wagner’s first to simultaneously incorporate interior and exterior space within one work.
