Brookville, N.Y. -- Painter, draftsman, art writer and videographer Loren Munk, known for documenting the New York art scene through his reviews, maps, diagrams and video reports, will speak to students about his work at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23 at Studio A of the Sculpture Building at LIU Post.

Munk documents the New York art world in online videos using the name James Kalm. His YouTube channels, the Kalm Report and Rough Cut Channel, have been viewed four million times. Munk and his work have been featured in The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Village Voice, New York magazine and many other publications.

Following his talk, which is free to the public, Munk will critique the work of students in the ART 600 Master of Fine Arts seminar class, providing crucial feedback for students preparing to enter the professional art world.

“Munk is a hardworking artist, has incredible knowledge of art history, knows the New York Art scene better than anybody, yet is humble and down to earth,” said LIU Post  Adjunct Professor Jeffrey Allen Price, who invited the artist to speak.

Munk’s talk is free and open to all. Please call the Art Department at 516-299-2464 to reserve seating.

In addition to exhibiting in Brazil, France, Germany and the United States, Munk has received national and international public and private commissions including a mural competition for the Mayor's Office of Paris. He is well-represented in important collections throughout Europe, South and North America and the Middle East. In addition, Munk has lectured and critiqued at New York's School of Visual Arts, The Studio School, The New York Academy of Art, The Sotheby's Institute of Art, and Lehman College. 

The LIU Post M.F.A. program is an intensive, yet flexible 60-credit program that offers art students the opportunity to further their creative development in a two- or three-year plan of study. Students work closely with faculty to develop their work in the studio and in seminars. The program’s focus includes contemporary Issues, current exhibitions, artist’s writings, and theory and criticism, making full use of LIU Post’s proximity to New York City’s museums, galleries and other venues.
