As part of the Tuesday Night MFA Lecture Series, BU College of Fine Arts School of Visual Arts presents a lecture with artist Mary Lum.

Mary Lum is a visual artist whose intricate collages, paintings, and photographs explore the margins of city life, geometric abstraction, and the use of text as image. Her work has been exhibited in numerous institutions and publications internationally, including Mass MoCA, North Adams, MA; The Drawing Center, NY; Modern Artifacts (Esopus and MoMA, NY); deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum; and Oxford University, UK. Lum has been the recipient of numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship (2010), the Radcliffe Fellowship for Advanced Study (2004-2005, 2022), and a MacDowell Fellowship (2018), among others.

This is a free and in-person event available to the BU Community.

Hosted by the graduate programs in painting and sculpture at Boston University, the Tuesday Night MFA Lecture series brings practicing artists to campus to present their work throughout the semester.

BU College of Fine Arts School of Visual Arts prepares students to think seriously, to see critically, to make intensely, and to act with creative agency in the contemporary world. The School of Visual Arts merges the intensive studio education of an art school with the opportunities of a large urban university, and is committed to educating the eye, hand, and mind of the artist.
