The MFA in Visual Studies program at Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) presents a talk by Wayne Koestenbaum February 16, 2017 at 6:30pm.

Poet, artist, and cultural critic, Wayne Koestenbaum has published 18 books of poetry, criticism, and fiction, including Notes on Glaze, The Pink Trance Notebooks, My 1980s & Other Essays, Hotel Theory, Best-Selling Jewish Porn Films, Andy Warhol, Humiliation, Jackie Under My Skin, and The Queen’s Throat (a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist). He has had solo exhibitions of his paintings at White Columns (New York), 356 Mission (L.A.), and the University of Kentucky Art Museum. His first piano/vocal record, Lounge Act, will be issued by Ugly Duckling Presse Records this year. He is a Distinguished Professor of English, Comparative Literature, and French at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York City.

Visiting artists and curators enrich PNCA’s MFA in Visual Studies, a multidisciplinary, mentor-based program that encourages independent inquiry and supports critical approaches to the production of visual art. Grounded in one-on-one mentorships, the program is enhanced by exhibition opportunities, seminars, residencies, and national and international travel. Past visitors have included Katherine Bradford, Michelle Grabner, Jibade Khalil Huffman, Wangechi Mutu, and A.L. Steiner.
