I Powerpoint: A Fireside Chat with David Byrne

March 10, 2005 | 7:30-9:00 PM | 100 Humanities Instructional Building

This visit is part of David Byrne's West Coast tour, which includes the Portland Art Museum, UC Berkeley and UC Santa Barbara. He gave a similar lecture last year at LACMA to a sold-out audience. Best known as a musician (co-founder of the Talking Heads and Academy Award-winning film composer), David Byrne started out as an art student, attending both the Rhode Island School of Design and Maryland Institute College of Art. He began using PowerPoint as an artistic medium a few years ago and has created a number of stand-alone art pieces that have been exhibited in galleries and museums and installed publicly, and are also included in his 2003 book/DVD Envisioning Emotional Epistemological Information. Byrne's PowerPoint projects earned him a Wired RAVE Award for Art last year.

Free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and is not guaranteed.
