Lecture | March 2 | 6:30-8 p.m. | Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive
Presented by the UC Berkeley Department of Art Practice.
Autumn Knight, Interdisciplinary Artist
In this talk, interdisciplinary artist Autumn Knight discusses how a series of performance projects use text and/or improvisation as strategies for survival within the institutional space. Looking at recent and ongoing works, Knight will discuss the breadth of concerns at work (or play) in this practice: psychoanalysis, public space, institutional boundaries, performative authority. Knight is also thinking through cultivating avatars, employing choreography, and withholding as communication. For more information, visit artsdesign.berkeley.edu.
