William Lamson is an interdisciplinary artist whose diverse practice involves working with elemental forces to create durational performative actions. Since graduating from the Bard MFA program in 2006, he has produced site specific installations for the Indianapolis Museum of Art, The Center For Land Use Interpretation, and Storm King Art Center. He has been awarded grants from the Shifting Foundation, the Experimental Television Center, and most recently he has been selected as a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow.
Each year professional artists are invited to give lectures at Pratt and conduct studio visits with our graduate students. In addition the VALS program is coordinated by two selected graduate students and over seen by Faculty advisors. The goal for the lectures and studio visits are to provide our students with exposure to a wide array of artists working in a variety fields and at various stages in their career.
Pratt Institute's Department of Fine Arts 2015/2016 Visiting Artist Lecture Series was made possible in part by generous grants from The Robert Lehman Foundation and The Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation.
