"Sculpture in the Expanded Field"
Through work inspired by man-made disasters, couture garment designs, and various other industrial and domestic forms, Io Palmer's artworks explore complex issues of class and societal excess.

She has participated in residencies at Sanskriti in New Delhi, India; the Santa Fe Art Institute; Art Channel in Beijing, China; and Ucross in Clermont, Wyoming. Palmer recently received an Idaho Commission on the Arts Grant (2014). She holds a BFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA and an MFA from the University of Arizona.
The talk will be followed by a reception.
