David Teng Olsen Artist Talk

Reflections on Research in the Visual Arts: Vinyl Mural Installation and More

Work by David Teng Olsen

Artist David Teng Olsen will be giving an artist talk on Thursday, February 8, 2018, 11:15am at the UMass Dartmouth Satellite Campus in Downtown New Bedford, the historic Star Store Building, a New Bedford landmark. Among other projects, Teng Olsen will be speaking about his recent installation, Smoked My Head on Yes Waters (2017), which consists of 7.5’ x 60’ cut vinyl on glass at Davis Museum at Wellesley College.

David Teng Olsen is an artist of indefatigable energy. His work merges the worlds of mural painting, printmaking, animation, interactive digital media and performance, and his project Chasing Infinity extends his previous work with a five-channel projection surrounding the viewer with an animation in progress. Olsen has taught digital media at Wellesley since 2006. He has created site-specific installations across the country and has collaborated on numerous animation projects.   

This artist talk is supported by the UMass Dartmouth Office of Undergraduate Research Lecture & Workshop Series, and will take place at Star Store Room 254, 715 Purchase Street, New Bedford, MA 02740.
