Event Details

Visiting Artist Adam Putnam will be giving a lecture on Thursday, October 1st at 7pm in the Fine Arts Building.

From a press review on his website:

Adam Putnam examines the social and aesthetic dimensions of human bodies, often by pushing the physical limits of his own. In the past he has suspended himself by chains in the gallery and squeezed himself into a cabinet, gestures that recall the endurance spectacles of early performance art. Though the artist was not physically present in his latest show, the sculptures, videos, photographs and drawings on view all implied the body and prompted sprawling meditations on life and death, creation and destruction. Each object ached for subjective engagement, for the unifying and decomposing force of flesh to communicate its meaning.
