Spring 2023 Art Department Art Faculty Colloquium
Professor Christina West
Tuesday, February 21, 2023
Christina A. West is an artist whose practice is rooted in politics of the gaze, using sculpture, video, and photography to focus on the male body. Her works attempt to move beyond a simple reversal of the objectifying male gaze, conveying a mixture of desire, curiosity, and empathy, while complicating and questioning stereotypical notions about masculinity and femininity. Her work has been supported by residencies at The Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, The Archie Bray Foundation, and more.
