Artist Talk: "We Are Animals of Language"
Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Forum, 4th Floor
Artist Lesley Dill discusses the role of language in her work, which ranges from sculpture and photography to opera and large-scale community projects. She will screen a clip from 2008 opera Divide Light, present a multi-tiered project, Tongues on Fire: Visions & Ecstasy, in collaboration with the Emmanuel Baptist Church Spiritual Choir in Winston-Salem, NC, and will also show images from her fall 2010 installation Hell Hell Hell Heaven Heaven Heaven: Sister Gertrude Morgan and Revelation (New Orleans) and from her spring 2012 installation, Faith and the Devil (New York City). This program is free with Museum admission.
