Artist Lydia Okumura, who is opening her exhibition at UB Art Galleries on September 8th and 10th, will be lecturing on her work in the Department of Art class Installation: Urban Space this Wednesday, September 7th, at 6pm in B13 in the Center for the Arts.

Okumura challenges viewers to question their perception of space through sculptures, installations and works on paper that blur the line between two and three-dimensions. Originally from Sao Paulo, her practice has spanned Brazil, the United States, and Japan, and is in important public collections.
