Studio Visits will welcome Stan Shellabarger + Dutes Miller for a special edition of the Wednesday morning lecture and talk show next week April 13, 2011 at 9am in Holmes, Harder Hall. In addition, they will be creating a new performance on campus in the days that follow! More about this to come! In the meantime, check out more about their work at http://www.westernexhibitions.com/miller_shellabarger/

Photo: Untitled (Grave), Debuted at the Volta art fair in Basel in 2008, Miller & Shellabarger dug, in close proximity to each other, two holes, deep and large enough for each man to lie in. They then dug a small tunnel between the holes that enabled them to hold hands while lying in the graves. (Thanks to Western Exhibitions for the photo.)
