Body Matters: A Conversation with Artists Holland Houdek and Gina Westergard
March 23 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Moderated by Curator Cassandra Mesick Braun, this is the first in a series of conversations with artists in the exhibition Healing, Knowing, Seeing the Body. Featuring Holland Houdek and Gina Westergard, this session focuses on the capacity of functional artwork to tell stories and act as interventions for transforming or extending life and confronting death. In the first half hour, the artists introduce their work. In the second half hour, we invite you to join the conversation.
