Lucy Orta (b. Sutton Coldfield, UK, 1966) and Jorge Orta (b. Rosario, Argentina, 1953) founded Studio Orta in 1991. Lucy + Jorge Orta’s collaborative practice focuses on the social and ecological factors of environmental sustainability to realise major bodies of work employing drawing, sculpture, installation, object making, couture, painting and silkscreen printing, as well staging workshops, ephemeral interventions and performances. The exhibition Food - Water - Life / Lucy + Jorge Orta is currently on view in the Ben Maltz Gallery through December 6.
The lecture will be simulcast on 96.1 FM, brought to you by Creative Action Radio students Chelsea McCarthy, Hakob Minasian and Josh Wallace. Listen on your own radio or at the listening stations placed in the Ben Maltz Gallery, Otis Café and Otis Library.
