MOBILE — Artist Jacqueline Bishop will present a lecture titled “Losing Ground: Imaginary Landscapes” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10 in Byrne Memorial Hall on the Spring Hill College campus.
Bishop is known for paintings and installation that focus on landscape issues – particularly the politicizing of nature, species extinction and eco-political injustice – influenced by 30 years of traveling to third-world countries and Latin American forests. She received her M.F.A. from Tulane University and taught Art and Environment at Loyola University and Tulane University. She is author of “Em Memoria Chico Mendes: A Tribute on the 10-Year Anniversary of His Death” and “Losing Ground: Imaginary Landscapes.”

Bishop founded and organized ArtSpeak for six years at the Contemporary Arts Center, and for five years she hosted and co-produced the award-winning program “Louisiana Artist” for WWNO, an NPR affiliate radio station that interviews contemporary visual artists about their work. She has exhibited and lectured in Europe, Asia, South America, Canada and the U.S. and is a grant recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and Joan Mitchell Foundation. Bishop is represented by the Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans.
