Visiting Artist | Catherine Wagner | Gary Metz Series (Photo Department)
Catherine Wagner works with elements of contemporary society and transforms them into conceptual images that investigate culture. For more than 30 years she has been a keen observer of the built environment, examining institutions of learning and knowledge, such as art museums and science labs, as well as the ways we construct our cultural identity. Wagner’s process involves the investigation of what art critic David Bonetti calls "the systems people create, our love of order, our ambition to shape the world, the value we place on knowledge and the tokens we display to express ourselves."
