Students of Interdisciplinary Artist Suzanne Lacy Celebrate ‘Witnesses to the World’

How do we capture the experience of looking at each other through webcams? How can we characterize that looking? And what meaning do we find in it? In an event not to be missed this week, a group of artists and students will explore these questions.

The multimedia web showcase, Come a Little Closer, will feature work of the students of public performance artist Suzanne Lacy at USC’s Roski School of Art and Design. Through video, photography, music, dance, and augmented reality, they’ll delve into themes of gender, identity, climate change, colonialism, religion, and cultural exchange.

The event is coming up this Thursday, January 14 at 5pm PST/8pm EST and hosted by 18th Street Arts Center. It’s online and free to attend. You can register here! In the meantime, check out more coverage of the event on Hyperallergic.
