Part of the annual Michigan State University Department of Art, Art History, and Design Guest Lecture Series, artist David Humphrey will discuss his work on April 10 at 7 p.m. in South Kedzie Hall, 105. The paintings of David Humphrey employ surreal and kitsch imagery in a humorous and sometimes biting narrative of middle-class malaise. Beyond the studio, he is a Senior Critic at Yale School of Art and an anthology of his art writing, Blind Handshake, was published by Periscope Publishing in 2010. Humphrey is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Rome Prize among other awards.
