CHRISTOPHER COZIER '86, TOPICALITY, FLUIDITY, FLEXIBILITY: VISUAL NEGOTIATIONS FROM PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD
Thursday, Oct. 8, 7 p.m., Falvey Hall, Brown Center, 1301 W. Mount Royal Ave.
Christopher Cozier's writing and artwork, including installation, video, performance, drawing, painting and sound, speak to questions of individual identity within and sometimes opposed to cultural identity. During this talk, Cozier '86 examines the understanding of the Caribbean as a critical space, rather than a place. Mobile populations define the Caribbean as an experience. He questions, "Is there a particular way of seeing through contemporary Caribbean visual practice? Is this question useful?"
