Gallery Preview and Lecture: Richard T. Walker

Artist Richard T. Walker will give a behind-the-scenes tour of the installation of his upcoming exhibition at the ASU Art Museum, Richard T. Walker: the predicament of always (as we are), which opens Sept. 27, 2014. 
Walker, a British artist currently living and working in San Francisco, brings a unique outsider perspective to the American West landscape. His videos, photographs, installations and performances take seclusion, human nature and dialogue as their subjects. Focusing on the experience of our surrounding environments, Walker’s works highlight clashes between innate desire, cultural interpretation and reality, becoming almost behavioral studies of the act of experiencing.
 
For Richard T. Walker: the predicament of always (as we are), on view through January 3, 2015, Walker places musical instruments inside the frame of multiple landscapes, creating a soundtrack from his experience by responding to nature through musical and visual compositions. The multi-layered result both activates and interrupts the landscape through a unique homage to the sublime.
