Event Navigation

Tickets will be required.

Heather Dewey-Hagborg is a transdisciplinary artist and educator who is interested in art as research and critical practice. She will give a joint talk with Chelsea Manning, the collaborator for her most recent work, Probably Chelsea (2017). While in prison, Manning mailed cheek swabs and hair clippings to Dewey-Hagborg, who created DNA-derived sculptural portraits that illustrate a multitude of ways in which DNA can be interpreted.

Tickets available here.
