Stimulus: Space, Place, and Body at McColl Center

November 7, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Stimulus: Space, Place, and Body

Thursday, November 7, 2019 from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.

McColl Center
721 N Tryon St.
Charlotte, NC 28202

Free with registration

Fall 2019 artists-in-residence Anna Garner and Pablo Rasgado and visiting artist Carolina Maki Kitagawa will discuss the use of sculpture as a medium to examine the movement of bodies in private and public space. Their work considers architecture, the presence of other bodies, and signs of power through spatial relations and visual symbols such as police cars or traffic signs.

The artists, along with McColl Center visiting curator Laura Ritchie and UNC Charlotte College of Arts and Architecture Director of Galleries Adam Justice, will examine how performative staging and/or interactions with sculptural structures can reorient normative relations to material space, thus questioning ingrained power dynamics and perceptions of control over one’s own or another body. By activating and deactivating inanimate forms, space, place, and the body, each becomes malleable to envision new possibilities.
