Jules Gimbrone is a Los Angeles-based artist and composer that asks how social performance is codified, captured, and transmitted. Combining sound and objects into immersive aural and haptic environments, Gimbrone re-engineers sites of past and current performances with audio transduction equipment, producing installations that transform the sounds of performance into a physical experience for the audience. Gimbrone attended Smith College (BA, 2004) and CalARTS (MFA Music Composition, 2014). He has exhibited in galleries, institutions, and museums across the United States. Gimbrone is Artistic Director and co-founder of PSSST, a non-profit art space in Los Angeles, CA.
Each year professional artists are invited to give lectures at Pratt and conduct studio visits with our graduate students. The Visiting Artists Lectures are coordinated by two selected graduate students and overseen by faculty advisors. The goal for the lectures and studio visits is to provide our students with exposure to a wide array of artists working in a variety of fields at various stages in their career.
Pratt Institute's Department of Fine Arts 2016/2017 Visiting Artists Lecture Series was made possible in part by generous grants from The Robert Lehman Foundation and The Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation.
