Visiting Artist Talk: Jesse Harrod

Date: 
Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - 6:00pm

Jesse Harrod’s work manipulates and transforms materials to animate their sexual and sensual qualities and explore the intersections among queer kinship, support and sexuality. In their sculptural installations, they work with rope as a pliable linear element that they regard much like a drawing tool, specifically utilizing known making techniques such as macrame in ways that can be understood as simultaneously restraining and support.

Visiting Artist Talk: Taylor Baldwin

Date: 
Thursday, November 21, 2019 - 7:00pm

Taylor Baldwin's work seeks to conflate the act of making with an act of violence - or unmaking - whether enacted physically or cognitively, whether enacted on an object, an image, or an idea. In his practice as a whole, he uses sculpture, video, and installation as a tool to stitch together and/or confuse the discordant relationship between a physical object and the cognitive experience of it.
