Lecture: SuttonBeresCuller
September 16th, 2010 | 7PM
Auditorium + East Gallery
Henry Members FREE | General Admission $5

SuttonBeresCuller is a trio of artists (John Sutton, Ben Beres, and Zac Culler) who have worked collaboratively since 1999, when they met as students at Cornish College of the Arts. Over the past decade they have created ways to engage viewers through mobile sculptures, street actions, and temporary site-specific installations that often attract (sometimes unsuspecting) audiences to new readings of and approaches to political, social, cultural, and aesthetic issues. SuttonBeresCuller is dedicated to a form of “public art” that is generous in nature, participatory for the willing, and refreshingly free of dogma for the uninitiated.
 
As part of the spirited exhibition Vortexhibition Polyphonica, these artists have created Panoptos – an interactive installation that will invite viewers, both on-site and online, to engage with the Henry’s collection in an entirely new way. Join the artists in the Henry Auditorium for a candid discussion on the development of their practice followed by a preview of Panoptos in the East Gallery.

Members of the Henry Contemporaries are invited to a private reception with the artists prior to the lecture at 6:00 p.m., hosted by the Contemporaries Steering Committee.   RSVP required to rsvp@henryart.org or 206.221.3244.
