Lance Winn taught at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Chicago prior to coming to the University of Delaware where he is the M.F.A. coordinator and works with Graduate and Undergraduate students in the Arts. He has been a visiting lecturer at the Cleveland Art Institute, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, Penn State, the University of Alabama, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and Mt. Holyoke; and has presented papers at Delta College, the Southeastern College Art Association, and, in February, he hosted the panel “Painting and Plurality” at College Art Association Conference in New York City.
In the field of art, Winn has published catalogue articles for “Reproduction” at Lemberg Gallery, in Detroit; an essay for Brian Bishop’s solo show titled “Pause” at University of Delaware; and, most recently, the catalogue essay for a show that he curated at the University of Delaware Galleries called ““InWords,” that included an international group of artists who work with language as material.
Winn’s personal work led to his nomination for the Louis Comfort Tiffany Award for painting last year and to his work being represented in an article on new forms of drawing that was published in Contemporary Magazine, out of London, in the Fall of 2006. Important shows include “Knock” at the Banff Center for the Arts in Canada; “Mediated” at Clarion University”; “Media City 11 International Festival of Experimental Film and Video Art” in Windsor, Ontario; “Machine Life” at the Davies Foundation and Samuel J. Zacks Galleries in York, Ontario; and “Violent Violence” at the Gallery Art et Amicitiae in Amsterdam, Holland. Winn has a five year survey of his work opening in November of 2007 at the Freedman Gallery at Albright College, and he and Simone Jones’ most recent collaborative robotic video projection “Knock,” which received funding to be produced and shown at the Banff Center for the Arts, will move the Montreal for its second full scale installation.
