Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s current Artist-in-Residence, Marianne Hoffmeister, has two exhibition openings and an Artist Talk Friday, April 6th. Both events are free and open to the public.

Hoffmeister is exhibiting her body of work, titled “On the Marvelous Generic,” from 3-5:30 p.m. in Jesse Dunn 323. At 5 p.m., she will present an Artist’s Talk, where she will discuss her work and influences, and also hold a Q&A session.

During the First Friday Art Walk event from 6-8 p.m. at Graceful Arts in downtown Alva, Hoffmeister will be exhibiting a series of small drawings she completed on site from direct observation around the city of Alva and nearby towns. These drawings will remain on exhibit through the month of April. Refreshments will be served at both events.

The March 2018 Artist-in-Residence is a collaboration between NWOSU Visual Arts, the Molten Capital Artist Residency and Apech Artistas Visuales Organizados in Santiago, Chile. Marianne was selected from a large number of artist applicants in Chile, with Molten Capital and APECH presiding over the first rounds of the selection process.

“My work reflects on the exploration and construction of diverse graphic systems and representational models such as catalogues, maps, archive material, atlas, and systems whose purpose is domesticating knowledge and giving a provisory order to the world,” Hoffmeister said. “Through media such as drawing and installation I propose new classifying systems or modifications to existing graphic languages to seek the experience of impossibility and, ultimately, present that the world we take for granted is a perishable pact and certainty is subject to constant transformations.”

Marianne Hoffmeister is from Santiago, Chile. She graduated from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Art. Marianne has exhibited her work extensively in Santiago, and recently completed the “The Map is not the Territory” residency at Cow House Studios in Dublin, Ireland.
