Event Details

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston School of the Arts is hosting a lecture entitled “Painted Bodies, Moving Canvases” by Amy Mackie, Director of Visual Art at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans. Mackie has been chosen as a guest juror for the "Young Contemporaries 2011" exhibition at the College of Charleston.
In her lecture, Amy Mackie will talk about the complicated, yet seemingly symbiotic relationship between painting, performance, and dance. Lynda Benglis’ “fallen paintings” and David Hockney’s installation Snails Space with VarioLites, “Painting as Performance” (1995-96) provide interesting platforms for this discussion. Another strand of investigation is the renewed interest in contemporary dance over the last five years. Two recent exhibitions concerning dance and movement, Dance with Camera at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2009) and Move: Choreographing You (2010) at the Hayward Gallery in London are also important precursors to this conversation. The intersection of gesture, landscape, and the body will be discussed through artists whose work navigates the politics of space and movement. Simons Center for the Arts, Room 309, 54 St. Philip St. Friday, 7pm. Free admission.
