Otis College of Art and Design presents the DONGHIA DESIGNER-IN-RESIDENCE LECTURE by JOEP VAN LIESHOUT, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles

Dutch artist JOEP VAN LIESHOUT lives and works in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and is the driving force behind ATELIER VAN LIESHOUT. Joep began as a solo artist, creating objects in brightly colored polyester-the material that would become his trademark-from the early 1980s onwards. In 1995 he founded Atelier Van Lieshout, undermining the myth of individual artistic genius.

Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) produces objects that balance on the boundary between art, architecture and design, encompassing sculpture and installations, buildings and furniture, utopias and dystopias. Recurring themes in the work of AVL are power, politics and autarky, as well as a fascination for life, its creation and its end in death. With this body of work, both autonomous and commissioned, AVL has attained international recognition. Over the past 25 years, AVL has exhibited at and/or been acquired by major art institutions and collections worldwide. AVL also produces commissions for and collaborates with architects such as Rem Koolhaas/OMA and MVRDV.
