The University of Michigan’s Copernicus Endowment and School of Art & Design will present a lecture by author Richard Noyce titled “A Stranger in a Strange Land: Traveling East to Find the World.” The presentation will be at 12:30 pm on March 14 on the University of Michigan’s North Campus. Noyce is an independent scholar who has written extensively on a wide range of subjects and artists for international visual arts magazines. His books include Critical Mass: Printmaking Beyond the Edge (March 2011); Printmaking at the Edge (2006); Contemporary Graphic Art in Poland (1997); and Contemporary Painting in Poland (1995), winner of the 1996 AAASS/Orbis Prize for best book in the English language on any aspect of Polish affairs.

For the lecture, Richard Noyce will discuss his involvement with the Krakow International Print Triennial and international printmaking in general, interweaving his personal history and involvement with Poland from 1968 until the present. Mr. Noyce will trace his research into Polish graphic art in connection with his book, Contemporary Graphic Art in Poland, referencing his interactions with artists in their studios and in galleries.

Noyce has traveled widely, especially in Poland and Lithuania, and has lectured extensively on the arts. He was elected President of the Awards Jury for the 2003-2009 Krakow International Print Triennials.
