Karen Finley to speak April 21st

Performance artist Karen Finley will be speaking about her work at Moore as part of the Studio Art Graduate Program Lecture Series. This exciting event will take place on April 21st from 6:30-7:30pm in Stewart Auditorium.

Karen Finley’s work spans a number of mediums, such as performances, books, and recordings, and is often considered controversial due to its graphic depictions of sexuality, abuse and disenfranchisement. Finley was one of the four artists whose grants from the NEA were vetoed in 1990, a dispute which brought art to the forefront of American politics.

For more of Karen Finley’s work, the library owns several of her books and videos. You’re sure to have a strong opinion about this provocative artist one way or the other!

Chakaia Booker Lecture on March 10th

Booker, who frequently addresses social concerns and issues of identity, has work included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Akron Museum of Art.

The lecture will take place in Stewart Auditorium from 6:00-7:30 pm. Don’t miss what’s sure to be an inspiring talk!
