Is it already the end of February? Does that mean spring is around the corner? We hope!
Come join us this week for a great line up of events.
Art Break Tour
Take a break Wednesday at noon and join us for a 30-minute lunchtime tour through Katinka Bock: A and I. This month’s faculty Art Break tour will be led by Kim England, Professor of Geography and Adjunct Professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies.
Critical Collaboration Session: Natural Systems
Only a few sessions left! This Thursday we explore natural systems while using Seattle’s Aurora Avenue as a point of departure. Through the lens of design, attendees will publicly address issues of identity, place, and civic infrastructure.
Artist Lecture: Jennifer West
Thursday night artist Jennifer West will lecture on her work. West makes 16mm, 35mm, and 70mm films by manipulating the film celluloid to a level of performance. The film emulsion might be doused with perfume, alcohol, mascara, or pepper spray, skateboarded on, kissed, or dragged through tar pits. West’s practice is characteristically influenced by urban mythology, folklore, and popular culture, and often addresses issues of the body, of gender, and of self-presentation.
This annual series is organized by the UW School of Art, in conjunction with the Nebula Project, to accompany the course Art 361/595 Critical Issues in Contemporary Art Practice.
Due to the popularity of this series, we encourage you to RSVP. Doors open at 6:15 pm and seating is first come first served for those with reserved tickets. All unclaimed seats will be released at 6:50 pm. If you were unable to RSVP, please come by the front desk as a limited number of standby tickets will be made available 10 minutes prior to the lecture.
Screening: Stemple Pass
Friday night is movie night – join us at 7 pm for Stemple Pass, the last installment in a series of films by James Benning made in relation to cabins he built in the Sierra Nevada. His two cabins are replicas: one of the retreat described by Henry David Thoreau in Walden and the other of the hideout of Ted Kaczynski, the notorious Unabomber.
