View theatre details
Visual artist Suzanne Bocanegra uses theater to interrogate the history and practice of visual art. Part performance, part memoir and part gleefully rambling cultural essay, her “Artist Lectures” are intensely personal, exhaustively researched and kaleidoscopically wide-ranging, exploring not only how and why she became an artist, but also general meditations on art-making, history, popular culture and our shifting ideals of human beauty.

The third lecture in a four-part series taking the stage at NYU Skirball this season, Bodycast is inspired by the two teenage years Bocanegra spent in a body cast due to scoliosis. Bodycast mines specific details of Bocanegra’s life to create a more general meditation on art-making and shifting ideals of feminine beauty.
