Date Released: 4/25/2008

Artist Douglas Ross reframes our perception of the everyday using a variety of strategies, including sculpture, video, broadcast and his own mechanized inventions. The Purchase College School of Art+Design presents a Visiting Artist Lecture with Douglas Ross May 7 at 6:30 PM in Room 1016 of the Art+Design Building. The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, call 914-251-6750.

Purchase College, State University of New York, is located at 735 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, N.Y.

Douglas Ross’ interventions either inserted into the space of the viewer or applied as conditions to a documented performance by the artist himself, transform passive awareness of reality into a cinematic or otherwise consciously mediated experience.

His work has been exhibited at museums and galleries throughout the United States and Europe, and he is the recipient of numerous fellowships and residencies from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, PS 1 Contemporary Art Center and ARCUS Project in Moriya City, Japan, among others. He was a guest professor at the Tokyo National University of Fine Art from 2004 to 2005, and has since been a member of the faculty of the Rhode Island School of Design and Cornell University.
