Artist’s Talk
Wednesday, Feb 18, 7:00 PM
Location: Elvehjem L150
Heather Cassils is an artist who uses the physical body as sculptural mass with which to rupture societal norms. Cassils performs trans not as something about a crossing from one sex to another, but rather as a continual becoming, a process-oriented way of being that works in a space of indeterminacy, spasm, and slipperiness. Forging a series of powerfully trained bodies for different performative and formal purposes, it is with sweat, blood, and sinew that Cassils constructs a visual critique and discourse around physical and gendered ideologies and histories.

Sponsored by the Center for Visual Cultures. Co-sponsored by Art History. Organized in conjunction with The Wet Archive. Funded by the UW-Madison Anonymous Fund.
