Electronic Art in a Contemporary Gallery
Performance Art Installation by Robert Lawrence
- March 22–April 2, 2010
- Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, April 1, 5pm, TETC
A little public dancing can sometimes turn even the most
a graffiti-covered street in New York City, a brick
sidewalk in Tampa Florida’s Latin quarter—into visually artistic
feasts. Artist Robert Lawrence explores the phenomenon in his
ongoing series of site-specific works,
Performances in this series refer to hidden local histories that
are revealed by an
accompanying Web site and further explored in videos, digital
prints and installations. The colonial and post-colonial
history of tango is used as a lens to illuminate such hidden
histories at the location of the public dance interventions
cited. For this installation premiering in Salisbury, selections
are included from his recent work in Washington, D.C., where he
was assisted by SU new media students.
Please join us for Robert Lawrence’s Artist Talk on Thursday,
April 1 at 5 p.m.
in the Teacher Education and Technology Center TETC153 followed
by a reception in the Electronic Gallery (TETC128).
