Artist Steve Lambert to present lecture in Kitchener as part of the Big Ideas in Art and Culture Lecture Series

Kitchener - Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area (CAFKA) and Musagetes are pleased to announce that Steve Lambert will present his practice at the Big Ideas in Art & Culture Lecture Series. The lecture will be taking place in the Rotunda at Kitchener City Hall (200 King St. W., Kitchener, ON) on Tuesday May 22, 2012 at 7:00 PM. Admission is free.

Steve Lambert is an American artist who works in a variety of media, commonly using print and communication vehicles as a means of developing a dialogue with his audience. He has produced interactive scoreboards, letterpress posters, signage and postcards. One of Lambert’s best known projects is The New York Times “Special Edition”, which announced the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan following the 2008 American election.

Lambert uses art as a bridge to connect uncommon, idealistic, or even radical ideas with everyday life. He carefully crafts various conditions where these ideas can be discussed with people to produce a meaningful exchange. Often this means working collaboratively with the audience, bringing them into the process or even having them physically complete the work.

He has collaborated with well-known art collectives such as the Yes Men and the Graffiti Research Lab, and other organizations such as Greenpeace. He is also the founder of the Center for Artistic Activism, the Anti-Advertising Agency, Add-Art (a Firefox add-on that replaces online advertising with art) and SelfControl (which blocks grownups from distracting websites so they can get work done).

The artist will be available for interviews on request in advance of the lecture. Please contact Sarah Kernohan to arrange a time for an interview.

There will be a shuttle from downtown Guelph to Kitchener for the Steve Lambert lecture, departing from 193 Woolwich St. (Macquarie House) at 6:00 PM. Seats will reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Please visit stevelambertbus.eventbrite.com or call 519 836 7300 x 103 to reserve your seat.
