Texas-based installation artist Beili Liu will give an illustrated talk titled "Drawn With a Thread," 6 p.m. Aug. 25 in Room 11 of the Home Economics Building on East Campus.

Liu's lecture is in conjunction with her exhibit, "Strain," on display through Sept. 9 in the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery on the second floor of the Home Economics Building.

Born in Jilin, China, Liu is an associate professor in the College of Fine Arts at the University of Texas at Austin. Her work evokes transience and fragility through material exploration and transformation of space.

The Friends of the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery will host a reception immediately following the lecture outside the gallery. Liu's exhibition is made possible with support from the UNL Convocations Committee, the Friends of the Gallery, and the Women and Gender Studies program.

Admission to the lecture and the exhibit is free. The Home Economics Building is on 35th Street north of East Campus Loop.
