ON DISPLAY GLOBAL

Catey Ott Dance Collective and Milwaukee community dancers will perform Heidi Latsky Dance's ON DISPLAY GLOBAL.

ON DISPLAY is a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show and commentary on the body as spectacle and society's obsession with body image. It turns a cast of diverse and extreme bodies into a sculpture court where the performers are the sculptures. ON DISPLAY began as a simple human sculpture court and is now a movement, a growing portfolio of works that explore and demonstrate inclusion through art.

Thursday, December 6, 2018, 7 p.m.
UWM DEPARTMENT OF ART & DESIGN: ARTISTS NOW! GUEST LECTURE SERIES: SKY HOPINKA
UWM Union Cinema, 2200 E Kenwood Blvd, Milwaukee, WI 53211
Information: (414) 229-6052 or arts.uwm.edu

In conjunction with his 2017 Nohl Fellowship, Sky Hopinka screens works that traverse a wide range of topics dealing directly and indirectly with indigeneity--assertions of identity and presence in the face of and regardless of colonial history and outdated traditions of anthropology and ethnography. They make space for poetry, for beauty, for movement between cosmological and visceral worlds, sometimes blurring the lines between both. They claim what was always theirs, and celebrate what was never lost.

Thursday, December 13, 2018, 6 to 7 p.m.
Gallery talk with Peter Barrickman, artist and Interim Associate Professor at MIAD, and John Riepenhoff, artist and curator and co-owner of The Green Gallery in Milwaukee. This talk is in conjunction with the exhibition The Nohl Fellowship@15.
