Liz Magic Laser '03 will have three of her films screened: "Distressed" (2009), "Mine" (2009), and "Flight" (2011). She served as the commissioned artist for the 2013 Armory Show, one of the largest international contemporary art fairs. She makes performance-based art steeped in cross-disciplinary approaches, merging live theater, film, and video to deconstruct the mechanisms of political melodrama. Ms. Laser was one of the artists featured in the debut of the "Performance Now" exhibition curated by RoseLee Goldberg in the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery from September to December 2012. She was also part of a WESeminar about Performance Art in October 2012. For more information about her, please visit http://www.lizmagiclaser.com.
This screening is part of "The Alumni Show II" in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Center for the Arts, which looks back at four decades of Wesleyan artists. Building on "The Alumni Show" held in November and December 2003 in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the CFA, the exhibition features an entirely new selection of seventeen alumni artists. Their work spans a broad range of contemporary practice and media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, installation art, video art, performance, and films.
