CCSâ??s continues its popular Woodward Lecture Series with a talk by painter Katharina Grosse on Thursday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m. Grosse is one of the most inventive and intriguing painters working today. Through a fusion of painting with architecture and sculpture, Grosse produces a physically immersive experience for the viewer, choosing to work directly onto walls and objects using an industrial spray gun. Her spray painted works enliven surfaces as vast and unorthodox as building exteriors, disused bunkers and massive dirt piles, as intimate as her own bed, bookshelves and clothing, as conventional as a stretched canvas or paper. Born and based in Germany, Grosseâ??s work has been commissioned by institutions around the world. The lecture is free, open to the public, and held at CCSâ??s Wendell W. Anderson Jr. Auditorium located in the Walter B. Ford II Building on the Walter and Josephine Ford Campus (201 East Kirby, Detroit, MI 48202). The Woodward Lecture Series, a dynamic forum for bringing renowned artists to the College for public lectures and learning sessions, was established through a generous endowment by an anonymous donor in 1998.
