Knowlin’s project statement:
For the past twenty years, my work has dealt with issues of race and  
gender. I explore issues of marginalized subcultures, stereotypes, and  
coded language. The work challenges the way American culture perceives  
and judges groups of people, as well as the way groups of people  
interact with one another. While some pieces intentionally and  
consciously use stereotypes as a critique of their absurdity, others  
explore the issues through personal narratives.
Artist Talk with Diana Synatzske
October 8, 2015 at 2pm in VAC 103
All events will be at the FJ Taylor Visual Arts Center / Louisiana Tech University
