UWSP’s Carlsten Gallery to exhibit artistic performances in “Incarnate”
STEVENS POINT – A collection of video performance art will be on display during the first fall semester art exhibition at the Edna Carlsten Art Gallery at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
“Incarnate” will be on display from September 17 to November 5.
Documented performance art and experimental video from nine performance artists will be screened and shown on the gallery’s television screens. Visitors can see each piece as they play simultaneously and continuously, creating a conversation between the works themselves in the space, said Melissa Airy, studio art professor at the School of Design and Communication.
“The exhibit was inspired by the need for greater exposure to contemporary art and time-based experimental art in our campus community and in central Wisconsin as a whole,” said Airy. . “As the department turns to a more interdisciplinary approach to artistic creation, our hope is to present works that support this creative process. “
The collection of works explores how identities, emotions and experiences are perceived in the human body while simultaneously being expressed and understood by the outside world, she said.
Discretion of viewers recommended.
