The meeting with the two American artists will take place in conjunction with the exhibition "Words in the World". Pendleton presents a live "portrait" of O'Grady through a scripted conversation that upends normative uses of language and the re-presentation of O'Grady's work. Over the past half decade Adam Pendleton (b. Richmond, Virginia, 1984) has created language-based silkscreens, videos, and performances that critically investigate issues of identity, queerness, and power structures, using appropriated images, texts, and cultural cliches from a broad range of sources to re-imagine political and social realities. Lorraine O'Grady (American, b. 1934) is an artist and critic whose installations, performances, and texts address issues of diaspora, hybridity, and black female subjectivity. Monday, April 23, 2012, 7p.m., Theater 2, T2.
