Bodycast, an Artist Talk by Suzanne Bocanegra Starring Frances McDormand

Thursday, April 18 at 7:00pm

A story about Beauty, Small Town Texas, Orthopedic Surgery and Classical Sculpture.
Part artist talk, part performance, part essay, part live video installation.

New York-based artist Suzanne Bocanegra talks about her work, channeled through Academy Award winning actor Frances McDormand. Together – sort of – they tell a tale of Titian, girls drill teams, rose queens, scoliosis, and the history of how artists are taught to make art, and how all of us are taught to look at it.
