Artist discusses work, current projects
Posted 09.23.09 by Kel Millionie
Jose Ferreira will give a lecture on his artwork and current projects. Born in Mozambique and raised in South Africa, 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.
