The Department of Art hosts an artist talk and TASK party by internationally renowned artist Oliver Herring. TASK is an art party like no other in which participants of all ages dream up instructions for one another and carry them out with the materials provided. Among his many accolades, Oliver’s work was featured in Season 3 of PBS's "Art21: Art in the 21st Century." This is a unique chance to interface with a fascinating and highly regarded contemporary artist.
Oliver Herring (b. 1964, Heidelberg, Germany) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. In 2002 he created the improvisatory art event TASK, used in classrooms and communities to access contemporary art in a way that is experimental, open-ended, and accessible to anyone.
