SWITZERLAND ARTS ABRAMOVIC (3)Visiting Artist Lecture: Kira O’ Reilly
Date: 6 p.m., Wednesday Oct. 29, 2014
Location: Room 106 C, Binns-Merrill Hall

Kira O’Reilly is a UK-based artist. Her practice is both willfully interdisciplinary and entirely undisciplined, and stems from a visual art background. In her work she employs performance, biotechnical practices and writing to consider speculative reconfigurations around the body.

Since graduating from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff in 1998, her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, Australia, China and Mexico. She has presented at conferences and symposia on live art and science, as well as art and technology interfaces.

Cosponsored by: The Division of Sculpture/Glass Area, SOAD, College of Ceramics, and Interdisciplinary Art, CLAS with support from the Dance Program in Performing Arts, CLAS, Alfred University and Grace Exhibition Space, Brooklyn.
