New visiting artist series premieres fall 2010

West Long Branch, NJ -  Monmouth University will premiere ART NOW: Performance, Art, & Technology Series, a visiting artist series, in fall 2010.  ART NOW: Performance, Art, & Technology Series transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries and embraces artistic manifestations in diverse forms and spaces.  This series supports provocative work that transforms, challenges, and re-imagines what we know and what we think we know. All events are free and open to the public.  ART Now is made possible by the generous support of the School of Humanities and Social Science, and the Center of Distinction for the Arts at Monmouth University.

 

FALL 2010 SCHEDULE

Wednesday, October 20, 2010, 4:30 pm, Plangere TV Studio @ Monmouth University Performance artist and writer Terry Galloway presents "Out All Night and Lost My Shoes," a solo show directed by Donna M. Nudd.  Not quite blind as a bat, but definitely deaf as a doornail, Terry Galloway is the modern medical accident who's asking tough questions about disability, queerness, performance, and more in "Out All Night and Lost My Shoes," one of the foundational texts in the history of disability performance.  It's one hour of pure, energetic theater that mixes poetry, storytelling, stand-up, new vaudeville and plain old corny vaudeville in a charged, moving celebration of life - hers and that of all oddballs. A performance workshop with Terry Galloway and director Donna Marie Nudd will take place Wednesday, October 20, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, in Plangere Center 235.  For information about this event or to RSVP for the workshop, please contact Professor Deanna Shoemaker at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010, 6:30 pm, The ShowRoom in Asbury Park, NJ, 708 Cookman Avenue Hillerbrand + Magsamen, collaborative experimental video/performance artists will present a screening of their work as well as a talkback. Through the performative strategy of what they call formational interventions, Hillerbrand + Magsamen's internationally recognized work interstices between art and cultural geography by exploring perceptions of language, identity, media, and family within uniquely American subjectivities and created systems.
