Angela Ellsworth, Lecture and Exhibit
|Thursday, February 08, 2018, 06:30pm
Artist Lecture – 6:30PM at Parotti Hall. Reception & Exhibit: 7:30PM at McCray Gallery. Free. Angela Ellsworth is a multidisciplinary artist traversing disciplines of drawing, sculpture, installation, video, and performance. Her solo and collaborative work has taken in wide-ranging subjects such as illness, physical fitness, endurance, religious tradition, and social ritual. She is interested in art merging with everyday life where public and private experiences collide in unexpected spaces. Ellsworth founded the Museum of Walking (MoW) in one of the least walkable cities in the US, Phoenix. With 120 square feet of physical space MoW's reach is much wider than a room with four walls. MoW is committed to a conversation of land, action, and site within the context of art. The Plural Wife Project, navigates issues of the body in relation to gender, sexuality, and cultural histories of the western United States. Exploring the inherent queerness embedded in early Mormon polygamy, the project engages contemporary notions of non-heteronormativity and re-imagines a community of women pioneering an alternative history.
