"FROM A TO B
AND BACK AGAIN"
13th ANNUAL MILLER LECTURE
IN ART & ART HISTORY
Candice Breitz (born in Johannesburg, 1972) is a Berlin-based artist who is well known internationally for her moving image installations that explore popular culture and media's effect on the contemporary identity. In 2013, SCMA acquired Breitz's Factum Tremblay, a part of her Factum series. The series takes its name from Robert Rauschenberg's paintings Factum I and Factum II (1957), which examine the persistent differences in apparent replicas. Factum Tremblay explores questions of gender and sexual identity while growing up with a twin. (On view in the museum’s Video and New Media Gallery until August 28th, 2016.)
The Miller Lecture series, established at SCMA in memory of Dulcy Blume Miller, class of 1946, enables the Museum to bring a leading artist, architect, or art historian to campus each year to give a public lecture.
