FEB 12, 2012OBJECTS ON MY DRESSER: ARTIST TALK AND PERFORMANCE1:00–3:00 PM, Mills College, ART MUSEUM
As part of MCAM’s current exhibition, Spaces of Life: The Art of Sonya Rapoport, Sonya Rapoport and Dr. Revathi Vikram,psychiatrist, come together to explore the artist's memories of her past work and the life experiences that give her work context. Central to this discussion is Rapoport’s ongoing work Objects On My Dresser: Shared Dynamics, an interactive “netweb plot” from which connections between symbols, words and ideas are made. Over the course of the exhibition, gallery visitors have been invited to participate in this work by manipulating and customizing a new “netweb plot.” Dr. Revathi will analyze the recorded actions and motivations that have created this new plot in an effort to determine acollective Mills consciousness.
This performance with Dr. Revathi is an updating of Rapoport’s original collaboration with psychologist Winifred de Vos.
