Janie Geiser: Artist’s Talk

May 11 at 2:00
East Building Auditorium

Janie Geiser in person

A multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes performance, film, installation, puppetry, and painting, Janie Geiser’s internationally recognized films are known for their recontextualization of abandoned images and objects, the embrace of artifice, and a sense of suspended time. In this illustrated talk, Geiser explores her most recent films and performances with an emphasis on her collaborative processes and methodologies. “There’s so much to unveil in Geiser’s images, her complex language is like a vast manual of instructions of the unconscious, playful images with a particular voice, layers and layers of different dialogues” — José Sarmiento Hinojosa, Desistfim. (Approximately 60 minutes)
