Athi-Patra Ruga: Queenz in Exile: Of Avatars as Self-Preservation
Friday, November 4, 7pm
Admission: Free ($5 suggested donation)

Exploring the border-zones between fashion, performance and contemporary art, Athi-Patra Ruga makes work that exposes and subverts the body in relation to structure, ideology and politics. Bursting with eclectic multicultural references, carnal sensuality and a dislocated undercurrent of humor, his avatars, videos, tapestries and photographic images create a world where cultural identity is no longer determined by geographical origins, ancestry or biological disposition, but is increasingly becoming a hybrid construct. During this talk, the artist will discuss his work, the relationship between the mind and body, and the connection between surreality and sex. This talk is presented in partnership with the Penny Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series.
