Andréa Stanislav, the 2015-16 Henry L. and Natalie E. Freund Teaching Fellow, will deliver a public lecture in conjunction with the opening of her Currents series exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

Stanislav is highly engaged with interdisciplinary, multimedia, and traditional art practices, basing all aspects of her work and teaching around an integrated, pluralistic approach to making and thinking about art. In her cross-disciplinary practice in sculpture, installation, video, sound, and public projects, she seeks to stretch the boundaries of contemporary discourse. She is also an associate professor of sculpture in the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus.
