Tino Sehgal, This Situation: February 10-16, 2015
The Harnett Gallery is pleased to announce a special university edition of This situation, a live work by the ground-shifting contemporary artist, Tino Sehgal. Members of the greater University of Rochester community will enact the piece from February 10th through the 16th, from noon to 4:00 p.m. each day. The exhibition will conclude on the evening of the 16th with a public symposium in the Gowen Room from 5:00-6:30 p.m. where the piece's producers, Asad Raza and Julia Simpson, will discuss the work with Rachel Haidu and Heather Layton of the Department of Art and Art History. This situation and the accompanying symposium will foster a unique and rewarding experience for U of R faculty, graduate students and undergraduates, and for others in the wider Rochester community. All are invited, and are particularly encouraged to visit This situation on one of the afternoons it is on display.
This situation and the symposium have been organized by Joshua Dubler of the Department of Religion and Classics. The exhibition has been produced with the generous support of the Humanities Project. Vital supplementary funding has been furnished by the Hartnett Gallery, Film and Media Studies, German, Visual and Cultural Studies, and the course "Justice and Equality."
