Artist Talk by Gita Hashemi & Krys Verrall

Part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, co-presented by the Doris McCarthy Gallery and Studio Art program, Department of Arts, Culture & Media

Award-winning artist, curator and writer Gita Hashemi’s experimental transmedia practice spans over thirty years, and encompasses work that draws on visual, media, performance, site specific and live art strategies. Exploring social relations and the interconnections of language and culture, Hashemi’s work centers on marginalized histories and contemporary politics.

Krys Verrall is a founding member of Big Pond Small Fish. She has been instrumental in developing the organization’s philosophical approach to collaboration with vulnerable participants and those who typically encounter barriers to artmaking. Her approach elicits and then collaboratively develops the stories, drawings and perspectives of participants into experimental choral, art and video productions.
