Blaffer Art Museum and the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts are proud to host multi-disciplinary artist Lynne McCabe in residence for a class cum exhibition during the 2012 fall semester. McCabe makes interactive work that explores the potentialities and limits of "social sculpture". The term designates art that is produced collectively, often through a series of flexible parameters that the artist defines for herself, her participants, and her audiences. By focusing on process, collaboration, interaction and conversation, McCabe's work is a product of social engagement and active negotiation between all participants. These processes take varied forms for McCabe and include performance, installation, text, events, video and sound works.
The workshop is open to all. Students, faculty and members of the public are encouraged to partake in the experience (class credit available for students enlisted in I-Art).
