Intersectional Touch: Discussions and Performances

October 12, 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

1pm-2pm Unwritten Histories: Panel and Discussion led by Anne Hayden Stevens (Muller Meeting Room)
A number of the artists in the Center Program are working with histories that are either undocumented or difficult to impossible to record. These histories are fruitful places to work for artists as they provide space for imagination rooted in stories and experience. This talk provides space for exploration of the artifacts, documents and ideas that inform the artists work. Artists Wen Liu, Elissa Osterland and Maryam Taghavi will each give a short presentation. The program will be followed by an open discussion and the  opportunity to explore the artist’s work in the galleries.

230-3pm, 4-430pm, Walking a Floor Plan, by Shir Ende (Main Gallery)
Can movement condition the production of space and its very logic? Can the body and the movement we choose have the power to control space? Walking a Floor Plan is a durational performance that seeks to create architecture through walking.

230pm, Purgatory by Veronica Casado Hernandez (Cleve Carney Gallery)
Verónica Casado Hernández is a pastist (as opposed to futurist). She uses History to practice trans-temporal drag to explore narratives of power and rebellion by the means of anachronism. Her analysis of the past intends to highlight the ills of current society on issues of class, race, and gender.

3pm-5pm, Calligraphy Workshop by John-Michael Korpal (Muller Meeting Room)
Intersectional Touch Exhibiting Artist John-Michael Korpal leads a workshop on the history, techniques, and the resources of calligraphy. Pre-registration is recommended, email to secure your space!
