On January 31st, artist and designer Dan Clayman will deliver the latest offering in the Bard Graduate Center's long-running Irene and Paul Hollister Lecture Series, when the Rhode Island-based artist delivers a Wednesday evening talk entitled "Fragile Materiality." In his talk, Clayman will journey into the history of Studio Glass, mapping out the connections that link it to the contemporary moment, when applications of glass are expanding in the wider contemporary art and architecture realms.
To come to New York, Clayman will be taking a pause from his Federal Arts in Architecture project designing a permanent installation for the Ashley Federal Courthouse in Toledo, Ohio. Clayman's talk will weave together his own four-decade artistic journey with the larger trends in glass as a material for art and architecture. In addition to his art practice, Clayman is an educator, and from 2018 to 2021 served as chair of the former glass studies department at the University of the Arts.
Established in 2007, the lecture series is named for glass historian Paul Hollister (1918 - 2004) and his philanthropist wife, Irene (1920 - 2016), who was involved in the founding of the Association for Computing Machinery.
