In our May Zoom event PSG is pleased to host artist and writer Maria Porges in conversation with artist Julia Couzens.
Since the late ‘80s, Maria Porges has pursued dual practices as both writer and artist, teaching in both areas at California College of the Arts. A graduate of Yale University (BA) and the University of Chicago (MFA), her critical writing has been published widely in Artforum, Art in America, Sculpture, American Ceramics, Glass, the New York Times Book Review, and a host of now-defunct art magazines. She has also authored essays for more than 120 exhibition catalogues and multiple book contributions. Her exhibition career of image/text sculpture and drawings has included solo shows at galleries, museums and alternative spaces. She is currently working on a book about mending as an art form across multiple platforms. Maria Porges is Professor at CCA, serving in the Graduate Program in Fine Arts, the Graduate Program in Visual and Critical Studies and the undergraduate Fine Arts Program.
