Kresge Theatre

Event Navigation

Beverly Semmes works across sculpture, painting, drawing, film, photography, and performance to probe the complexities of the female body and its representation. Her ongoing Feminist Responsibility Project (FRP) transforms images from Penthouse magazines with rough brushstrokes of paint to create pools of color suggestive of pots. Semmes has had solo exhibitions at MoMA PS1, ICA Philadelphia, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Organized in collaboration with Carnegie Museum of Art and Carnegie International, 57th Edition, 2018.

All lectures are free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the East Campus Garage after 5:00pm or on Frew, Margaret Morrison, and Tech Streets after 6:00pm.
