Michal Heiman + John Tagg in conversation

Tuesday, October 25, Noon-1 pm EST/ 8:00-9:00 pm IST

Registration link: https://binghamton.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJ0pf-mpqTspH9EGrn5jX3IOg8wCoEdsP5ow 

Join the artist, Michal Heiman, in conversation with John Tagg (SUNY Distinguished Professor of Art History) about her recent work including the Dress Project and Michal Heiman Tests

Michal Heiman (b. 1954, based in Tel Aviv) is an artist, curator, member of the Tel-Aviv Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis, theorist, and activist whose work inhabits the spaces between art and therapy, photography and diagnosis, theory and praxis. As installations, video, sound, photography, performance, and archival displays, her work has been shown in venues such as the University of Melbourne Museum of Art, Documenta X (Kassel), Le Quartier (Quimper), The Jewish Museum (New York), The Museum of Modern Art (Saitama City), The Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven), Museum Ludwig (Cologne), the American University Museum (Washington DC), and the American Jewish University (Los Angeles).

John Tagg looks at forms of photographic practice that were not previously part of the History of Photography and writes about photography not as a self-contained medium but as a complex apparatus whose social effects and effects of meaning are multiple and diverse. His interests extend to the ways in which we construct histories of cultural technologies and visual regimes and to the range of theoretical debates that, since the 1970s, have transformed the business of art history. His publications, which have been translated into more than fifteen languages, include The Burden of Representation: Essays on Photographies and Histories (1988), Grounds of Dispute: Art History, Cultural Politics, and the Discursive Field (1992) and The Disciplinary Frame: Photographic Truths and the Capture of Meaning (2009).


 

Elizabeth Mozer, The Asylum Project selections + linkages

Tuesday, November 15, 6:00 pm
Main Gallery

Elizabeth Mozier’s one-woman play The Asylum Project is drawn from the lives of patients of the Binghamton State Hospital; their stories are expressed both physically and verbally. Mozer will perform a few select characters from the play in the gallery, surrounded by Michal Heiman: Radical Links. These performances will be joined with reflections on her practice, the play's links to Heiman's practice, and the history of the Binghamton State Hospital. 

Elizabeth Mozer (Associate Professor, Theatre)  is a director, actress, deviser (theatre maker) and educator, with a specialization in movement. Mozer performed The Asylum Project in NYC, Montreal, Boulder, and throughout New York, including performances at The Cherry Arts in Ithaca. In 2019, Mozer was selected to perform The Asylum Project at the International United Solo Theatre Festival in NYC where it received the award for Best Drama.
