Artist Eto Otitigbe Visits School of Visual Art and Design
Eto Otitigbe, Elizabeth M. Marion Visiting Artist, will present an artist talk on Tuesday, November 4, at 3pm in McMaster 214.
Eto Otitigbe is polymedia artist whose practice includes sculpture, performance, and installation to investigate issues of race, technology, politics, and human interaction. His work is charged with current political subject matter such as the over-engineering of society’s basic needs like food and water. Otitigbe’s art can be experienced as type of a creative protest, a cultural artifact, or a radical sculptural environment. Otitigbe places his art in dialogue with itself by extracting still images from videos and turning them into digital prints; or transforming two-dimensional graphics into sculptural reliefs.http://www.etootitigbe.com/

Marion Artist Lecture Series Endowment Fund. Free and open to the public. Poster designed by Emily Kristmar Muldrow.
