Shimon Attie, a New York-based, internationally renowned visual artist, will present and discuss selected art projects, from early site-specific installations across Europe through more recent works that involve multiple-channel immersive video installations.

In many of these projects, Attie engages local communities and draws upon a wide variety of media to reimagine new relationships between space, time, place. and identity.

Attie's work has been exhibited, collected, and commissioned by numerous museums around the world, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Centre Pompidou, and the Miami Art Museum, among many others.

He has also received numerous visual artist fellowships and awards, including the Guggenheim Fellowship, the Rome Prize, and a Visual Artist Fellowship from Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute.
