Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Margaret Evangeline is a contemporary painter, sculptor, and installation artist who lives and works in New York City. Evangeline has long experimented with aesthetically resistant material. Her primal batterings of form result in a surprisingly feminine voice, attuned to simplicity at the service of complex social and psychic concerns. Evangeline says she depends upon “the little thing that ruins it” to keep an artwork alive. She is perhaps best known for her use of gunshot and mirror polished stainless steel. Her work, JFK On Emergency Blanket, is featured in the UNM Art Museum’s exhibition “Beautiful Disintegrating Obstinate Horror Drawing” and Other Recent Acquisitions and Selections From the UNM Art Museum’s Permanent Collection.

Funding for this lecture series is generously provided in part by the Department of Art and Art History and by the Allene H. and Walter P. Kleweno Lecture Series Fund.
