The Practice and Politics of Looking

Wednesday April 17, 2019
7-8pm
Film/Video Theater, Wexner Center for the Arts

“How do you look?” The Practice and Politics of Looking graduate seminar invites you to a short presentation of performances, video art, and to slow down – to pause in a denotative reading and experience a photo meditation. Works include Blue Arms by Art MFA Benedict Scheuer, in which Scheuer covers his arms in hickies, as amplified sound and eye contact permeates the audience; performance by Dance MFA Kathryn Logan and Poet MFA Kaiya Gordon in which cyborging and conscious acts of seeing and being seen decentralize relationships between bodies, ways of looking, and the camera lens; video by Art MFA Lynn Kim did you know?, which explores the perception and embodiment of queerness and sexuality activated by the spotted hyena and the artist; and slow looking meditation with a Peter Hujar photograph, guided by Art MFA Lindsay Coffman. Using the question “How do you look?”1 as a starting point– the artists and members of Art 7108 The Practice and Politics of Looking, cut through and expand our understanding of race, gender, sexuality, accessibility, notions of self and other, as well as “The Paradox of Vision in Contemporary Art.”2 Following the program is a brief Q&A led by Art MFA Mitch Vicieux and Assistant Professor Gina Osterloh.
