Artist Talk: Claudia Bitran
February 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Hall of the Arts Room 322
NY-based multidisciplinary artist Claudia Bitran will speak about her multiple DIY projects that break down and reconstruct popular culture. Bitran’s approach to research for her lo-fi reenactments has not been different from the practice of a method actor: It has involved re-shooting the film Titanic by James Cameron, meeting Britney Spears in person, befriending strangers via YouTube, earning a giant check from Mcdonald’s, and participating on a reality TV show, to name some anecdotes. She will speak about how these feed into her painting and performance practice, and she will address humor, criticality, cruelty, obsession, among other topics that are urgent in her practice.
