Chris Doyle, a multidisciplinary artist whose video “Waste Generation” is on view at the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton College, will lecture at the Wellin Museum on Tuesday, April 2, at 6 p.m., in the Overlook. The “Artists in Conversation” series talk is free and open to the public.
“Waste Generation” is a kaleidoscopic animated video that explores the natural world and references the work of nineteenth-century Hudson River School painters. It is on exhibit in the Wellin’s inaugural exhibition, “Affinity Atlas,” through April 7.
Doyle’s body of work ranges from animations and projections to watercolors, public art and installations. He received a B.F.A. from Boston College and a master’s in architecture from Harvard University.
In addition to his recent solo exhibition at the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco and his work in the Wellin Museum of Art, Doyle’s work has been shown at the Brooklyn Museum, MassMOCA, P.S.1 Museum of Contemporary Art, The Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Sculpture Center, and as part of the New York Video Festival at Lincoln Center and the Melbourne International Arts Festival. His work has been supported by grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts, NYSCA, the Creative Capital Foundation and the MAP Fund.
Doyle’s temporary and permanent urban projects include LEAP, presented by Creative Time, and the installation Commutable, produced by the Public Art Fund, as well as recent commissions for the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo, Bosnia; Stockholm, Sweden; Melbourne, Australia; Edmonton, Canada; Culver City, Calif.; and Tampa, Kansas City, Louisville and Austin, Texas.
The lecture is sponsored by the Ruth and Elmer Wellin Museum of Art, Digital Humanities Initiative and the Art Department.
