The STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, once again partners with Professor Melissa Ragona to bring an artist lecture/performance to Pittsburgh this spring. Coming up on Wednesday, March 3 at 6:30pm is an event featuring Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, who will present and discuss their live audiovisual performance work for multiple film projectors.

In this mini-series, internationally renowned artists present work that highlights how
new technologies have transformed the way we think about live performance. By
examining the use of media (analog and digital) across the areas of sound, music,
performance art, programming, and installation, the performers in this series explore
how technology has changed the conventions of performative artistic practice.

The MEDIA PERFORMANCE SERIES is curated by Professor Melissa Ragona of the CMU
School of Art, as a component of her spring 2010 Seminar on Media Performance. The
series is hosted by the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, which supports atypical, interdisciplinary,
and inter-institutional research and events at the intersections of arts, science,
technology and culture. Produced with support from the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry,
the Dean of the College of Fine Arts, the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University, and
Pittsburgh Filmmakers.
