UW Art Dept. | Spring 2022 Visiting Artist Colloquium: Carrie Iverson

March 9, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Carrie Iverson is a printmaker and glass artist who often combines both media into multi-part installations. She strongly believes in the importance of art in public spaces, and has created several large-scale projects in reaction to the US/Iraq war. The first of these, The Façade Project, was a memorial to the US soldiers who died in Iraq. Installed in the windows of a three-story warehouse building on the west side of Chicago, each window contained the faces of nine US soldiers. Altogether, the piece showed the faces of six hundred forty eight of the troops as a tribute and reminder. Located on a busy street and next to a train stop the piece became a part of the community, invoking curiosity and conversation during its ten year installation (2004-2014). In 2006 she created a second version of the piece, Wake, which included the Iraqi dead as well as the US soldiers. First installed in the Phyllis Stigliano Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), it was then remounted in the lobby of the main Brooklyn Public Library where it was visible to everyone who entered and exited the building.
