Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series presents Cassils: The Body as Social Sculpture

Performance artist, body builder and transgender icon, Cassils makes their own body the protagonist of their performances and contemplates the history of violence, representation, struggle and survival. Using their own body as artistic material, Cassils processes influences from feminism, body art, hyper masculine and homoerotic aesthetics in an expression of transgender as a contunual process of becoming. With targeted, strictly disciplined strength training, Cassils draws from the idea that bodies are formed in relation to social expectations. Cassils will speak about past works and their starting points, development processes and historical contexts. Light reception at 5:30 p.m. in the Myrtle Tree Alcove. NOTE TIME CHANGE OF TALK TO 6 pm. More Information
