The School of Art is pleased to welcome visual artist Cassils to the Visiting Lecture Series, Thursday, November 11 at 5:30 p.m.

Cassils is a transgender artist who makes their own body the material and protagonist of their performances. Cassil's art contemplates the history(s) of LGBTQI + violence, representation, struggle, and survival. For Cassils, performance is a form of social sculpture: drawing from the idea that bodies are formed in relation to forces of power and social expectations, Cassils's work investigates historical contexts to examine the present moment.

All are invited to hear from Cassils virtually on Thursday, November 11 at 5:30 p.m.
