Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Janine Antoni @ the VAC
CU’s Department of Art and Art History’s Visiting Artist Program will present performance artist and sculptor Janine Antoni. Antoni has chiseled cubes of lard and chocolate with her teeth, washed away the faces of soap busts made in her own likeness, and used the brainwave signals recorded while she dreamed at night as a pattern for weaving a blanket the following morning. Beginning at 7 p.m. in the Visual Arts Complex, Antoni will present her body of work in which she has transformed everyday activities into ways of making art. This event is free for CU students.
