Darryl Lauster Talk at Amon Carter Museum
Professor Darryl Lauster, associate chair of the Art & Art History Department, is also an intermedia artist, writer, and professor of sculpture at the University of Texas Arlington. On April 14, he was invited to give a talk about The Broncho Buster and other Frederic Remington sculptures on view at the Amon Carter Museum as part of the museum’s “Second Thursdays at the Carter” series. This month’s talk focused on the theme of inspiration and identity and allowed patrons to learn from local experts about Indigenous representation in art. Lauster’s own art frequently “investigates the American past and present, and hinges on the tensions between the truth and fiction as it informs our understanding of history.”(www.darryllauster.com) He also is keenly interested in American Indian rights and land acknowledgment issues, and as such, was the ideal artist to speak about his perspective on representation in Western art.
