12:00 PM

This event recurs daily until 9/10/2015.
The List Gallery, Swarthmore College is pleased to present Ted Lott: Architectonic, the artist's first solo exhibition in the Philadelphia region. Lott will lecture about his work on Thursday, September 10, 4:30 p.m., in the Lang Performing Arts Center Cinema. A public reception will follow in the List Gallery. 5:30-7 p.m. Free admission is made possible by the Department of Art, Swarthmore College and the Donald J Gordon Visiting Artist Fund. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Sundays, Noon–5 p.m. The exhibition closes on October 25, 2015.Architectonic brings together mixed media sculptures that evoke the vernacular structures of American domestic architecture. Often incorporating found chairs or cases, and ranging in scale from intimate boxes to ten-foot-tall frameworks of slender pine, Lott transforms ordinary objects into hybrid structures that animate and enliven the spaces they inhabit. Lott prompts us to reflect upon contradictory aspects of the human condition. Yearning for stability, domesticity, and comfort, we also wrestle with itinerancy, fragility, transience, and transformation. Lott received a B.F.A. in Woodworking and Furniture Design from the Maine College of Art before going on to receive an M.F.A. from University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2011. Born and raised on the shores of Lake Michigan, Lott has resided in twelve different states and visited every one but Alaska. A 2012 recipient of an Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation grant, he has been awarded residencies by prestigious institutions including Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Kohler Arts/Industry Program, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, the Center for Turning and Furniture Design and Vermont Studio Center. His sculpture, furniture, and public art has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the country. Solo exhibitions of his work have recently been presented by Storrs Gallery, University of North Carolina; and Artisan Gallery, Paoli, WI. His work has also been included in numerous group exhibitions including at Blue Spiral One, Asheville, NC; Anne Wright Wilson Gallery, Georgetown, KY; Rose Contemporary, Portland, ME; Urban Institute for Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, MI; and Chazen Museum of Art, Madison, Wisconsin. Lott currently lives and works in Cooperstown, New York.

With an artist’s grace and a Caribbean soul, the Dalí Quartet is today’s freshest voice in Classical and Latin-American music. Anchored in both Venezuela's El Sistema and in American classical conservatory traditions, this exciting quartet combines the best of both worlds.

The Dalí Quartet’s captivating performances of traditional string quartet and Latin-American repertoire create an extraordinary concert experience that takes listeners on an eclectic journey of rhythm and sound. In the spirit of famed Spanish artist Salvador Dalí, the Dalí Quartet embraces imagination and excellence as central to its art form.

The quartet is comprised of award-winning solo and chamber artists who have appeared at Carnegie Hall, toured widely in Europe and Asia, collaborated with some of the finest composers of our time, and recorded for Dorian, Centaur and Naxos. Based in Philadelphia, the quartet has brought the Latin-Classical connection to television, festivals, educational, and presenting organizations on tour in Canada, the U.S., and South America. Recent and upcoming engagements include performances in New York, Toronto, Washington D.C., Detroit, Corpus Christi, Tulsa, and beyond.

The Dalí Quartet serves as Quartet in Residence for the Arts & Community Network where it hosts the Dalí Quartet Chamber Music Camp and Festival. The Dalí is also a Resident Ensemble of the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra in Philadelphia. A part of the Dalí Quartet’s mission includes the presentation of many Latin-Classical educational programs each year – its popular events for students in grades K-12 are complemented by interactive concerts for the entire family.

Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dalí Quartet are products of Venezuela’s social and music education movement El Sistema and have studied at esteemed institutions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University Bloomington, Conservatoire de Musique de Genève, Switzerland and the Simón Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela.
