Please join us in-person on Monday, May 16 at 6pm for our final OPC talk of the academic year by New York-based artist, Aki Sasamoto. Logan Center for the Arts, Penthouse Room 901

Aki Sasamoto works in sculpture, performance, video, and more. In her installation/performance works, Aki moves and talks inside the careful arrangements of sculpturally altered objects, activating bizarre emotions behind daily life. Her works appear in gallery spaces, theater spaces, and odd sites. Her works were shown at SculptureCenter, the Kitchen, Chocolate Factory Theater, Whitney Biennial 2010, MOMA-PS1, New York; National Museum of Art-Osaka, Hirosaki Museum of Contemporary Art, Yokohama Triennale 2008, Japan; Gwangju Biennial 2012, South Korea; Shanghai Biennale 2016, China; Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016, India; Kunsthal Rotterdam, Netherlands; the 59th Venice Biennale, Italy.

Presented by the Open Practice Committee in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago
