POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – Artist Anna Betbeze uses carpets and rugs to create unique works, and she will discuss her process in a lecture, “Plush Vision,” on Wednesday, April 13, at 5 p.m., at Vassar College's Taylor Hall, room 203, in Poughkeepsie.

This event is free and open to the public. Betbeze starts with flokai (shag) rugs, then uses fire, water, acids and dyes, among other agents, to create works that hover between painting and sculpture, architecture and fashion, landscape and interior space. A lecturer at Yale University’s School of Art, Betbeze has held solo exhibitions at Kate Werble Gallery in New York; Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art; Lüttenmeijer in Berlin; and François Ghebaly Gallery in Los Angeles.

Her work has also been included in numerous group exhibitions, notably at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and MoMA PS1 in New York. She was the recipient of a Metropolitan Museum of Art Rome Prize in 2013-14. Her work was profiled by Architectural Digest in 2015.

Vassar College strives to make its events, performances, and facilities accessible to all. Individuals with disabilities requiring special accommodations must contact the Office of Campus Activities at least 48 hours in advance of an event, Mondays to Fridays, at 845-437-5370.
