Curator, Artist, & the Golden Rule - Visiting Artist at Illinois Art League

Artist talk by Jessica Bingham for the Illinois Art League Members’ Meeting.

Jessica Bingham is a curator and artist based in Peoria, IL. She is the Curator of Art II at University Galleries of Illinois State University and since 2015 has co-operated Project 1612, a short-term residency and independent artist-run space in the garage at her home. Jessica is a multidisciplinary artist exploring childhood nostalgia, loss, home, and now, motherhood; these themes are implemented in various for­­ms including painting, found-object assemblages, and interactive installations. During her visit, she will discuss curating, both independently and institutionally, navigating studio time as a new mother, and how the age-old Golden Rule applies to her practice.
