Event Date: February 12, 2019
Time: 05:00 PM – 07:00 PM
Location: Fredericton

Event Details:

Associate Professor Michael V. Smith, from the University of British Columbia, will be the guest lecturer at this year’s W.C. Desmond Pacey Memorial Lecture.

Title:  This Body is a Gift: Gender and Meaning-Making in One Man’s Art

In a hybrid performance-lecture, Michael V. Smith presents a retrospective of his body-based creative work. Smith has made a career examining how bodies are read, misread, or re-read. This Body is a Gift explores ways in which art can (de)construct gender as a functional tool for undoing, unseeing, unbecoming. Inspired by the work of artists Leigh Bowery, Cindy Sherman, and Darren O’Donnell, Michael V. Smith up-ends the everyday to complicate what is a freak and who is familiar.

All are welcome to attend.
