JOSE FERREIRA

Wednesday, Sept. 23, 7 p.m., BBOX, The Gateway, 1601 W. Mount Royal Ave.

Jose Ferreira, born in Mozambique and raised in South Africa, will give a lecture on his work and recent projects. His artistic practice incorporates various media in which he engages debates about the self, technology, history and post-colonialism. The works often critique cultural generalizations of stereotyping and fetishism implicit in established cinematic genres. In performances, Ferreira, an assistant professor of sculpture at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, experiments with the temporal qualities of psychological capacity, stressing the limits of physical situations in relation to his body.
