Texas Christian University is pleased to welcome Enrique Martínez Celaya, the Cecil and Ida Green Honors Chair for the School of Art. As part of the Green Honors Chair program, designed to bring distinguished scholars, scientists, and writers to the TCU campus, Martínez Celaya will deliver his lecture “Five Projects Since Schneebett” on Wednesday, April 16. The lecture will address the artist’s last five major projects as a basis to discuss his work and his practice. As The New York Times describes, “The questions [Enrique Martínez Celaya] explores in painting (and in his related writings) belong to religion and philosophy: the meaning of life and death, the purpose of consciousness, and what it means to be good or do good.”
Enrique Martínez Celaya, trained as artist and as a physicist, works in painting, sculpture, photography, and writing. His work has been widely exhibited internationally and is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The State Hermitage Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden, and the Museum der bildenden Künste in Leipzig, Germany, among others. Martínez Celaya is a Montgomery Fellow at Dartmouth College, was honored as the second Presidential Professor in the history of the University of Nebraska, taught as a tenured professor in the faculty of Pomona College and Claremont Graduate University. He has received the National Artist Award from the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, the California Community Foundation Fellowship, the Knight Arts Foundation Grant, J. Paul Getty Trust Fund for Visual Arts, and the Young Talent Award from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. In 2013, Ediciones Polígrafa (Spain) published Enrique Martínez Celaya: Working methods/Métodos de trabajo a comprehensive study of Martínez Celaya’s work process and Radius Books (Santa Fe, New Mexico) published Enrique Martínez Celaya: The Pearl documenting the exhibition of The Pearl at SITE Santa Fe.
