July 15, 2010 by: Dom
From the UB Visual Studies Department come Alice Alexandrescu, Kyle Butler and Marc Tomko in “MommyDaddyBaby: Saving the Universe,” an experimental work of theatrical performance-action that uses video, sound, dialogue, dance, props, mobile assemblages, inflatables and crab walking to fascinate and appall.
Also, from the UB Department of Art comes Katrina Boemig’s “Community Installation Introduction,” a live installation built in Buffalo using gifts and instructions mailed from around the world.
Local comic artist and visual studies student Caitlin Cass will present “Comics by the Cover,” an art performance piece in which she will make short comics based on the covers of books people bring her, whether she has read them or not.
Carolyn Kaser, a Visual Studies fine arts major, will offer “Policy Makers,” a series of seven drawings, each drawing representing the faces from one day’s worth of news.
Jason Seeley of the Visual Studies Department will present “Project Free Collage,” an installation consisting of a series of small collages, hidden in plain view in various locations throughout the festival grounds.
Shasti O’Leary Soudant, a UB graduate student in the Department of Art, will exhibit “Gender-Bent Buffalo,” a series of portraits taken in the Gender-Bending Photo Booth at the Hallwalls Artists and Models Stimulus event held this spring.
