Kathy Rose: New Media and Performance Artist (A Visions and Voices event)
Thursday, October 11, 2012
University Park Campus
Grand Ballroom, Tutor Campus Center
Admission is free. Reception to follow.
Kathy will also host a related workshop on Friday, October 12, 2012.
Pioneering new-media and performance artist Kathy Rose will present a stunning multimedia performance fusing dance, sound, animation and film. Rose’s performances integrate live dance and projected images in a magnificent theatrical phenomenon set to rhythmic music. Influenced by Japanese aesthetics, her costumes, film projections and performances are abstract, textural and luminous. The performance will be followed by a conversation with Rose moderated by Margo Apostolos, associate professor in the USC School of Dramatic Arts.
Kathy Rose’s work has evolved from her early animated films of the 1970s through her unique, pioneering performance work combining dance with film in the 1980s and ’90s to her current surreal performance-video spectacles and installations. Rose has received numerous awards for her work, including a Guggenheim in Performance Art and a New York State Council on the Arts grant in Video (Media & New Technology). She has toured throughout the United States and Europe, performing at the Museum of Modern Art, Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, the Walker Art Center, The Kitchen, Institute of Contemporary Arts in London and Akademie der Künste in Berlin, among others.
