1000 Miles Apart Conference: Peter Barbor Artist LectureAlberta College of Art and Design Calgary, Alberta
Visual Arts, Crafts — Talks and Discussion
Born in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Peter Barbor has lived and worked across the United States. He received his BFA, Honors in Ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2010. In 2017, he graduated from the University of Washington’s 3D4M program having earned the de Cillia Teaching with Excellence Award.
Straddling territory between ceramics, sculpture, and drawing, Peter’s work engages the histories and mythologies of the sculpted figure. He is particularly concerned with exposing vulnerabilities and porosities in how these narratives define masculinity.
Peter has been an artist-in-residence at the Worcester Center for Crafts, Kirkland Arts Center, and Anderson Ranch Arts Center and most recently has been invited as Visiting Faculty in the Ceramics department at ACAD.
