Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Jodie Cavalier

Please join us for the KSMoCA Visiting Artist Lecture Series, which is open to members of the public and students at Dr MLK Jr School!

Info about talk: Lately I have been thinking about storytelling as a medium or material. I've never been one to use traditional art materials so this idea was very natural for me. I am most interested in how we (humans) can slow down and see or imagine alternative narratives and possibilities in our world. I cook food, I tell stories, I take pictures, I write poems, I send postcards, I make objects, I take walks, I try to be funny, I collaborate with others, I make lists...
