Art’s Jose Carlos Teixeira to present latest work at next Faculty Work-in-Progress event

flier for Jose Carlose Teixeira event at CWRUJose Carlos Teixeira, the Champney Family Visiting Associate Professor of Art, will present his latest work as part of the Faculty Work-in-Progress series. His workshop, titled “Alterity Revisited: Recent Projects,” will showcase his recent interdisciplinary and multimedia-based research explorations and will be held Thursday, Feb. 6, at 4:30 p.m. in Clark Hall, Room 206.

Teixeira’s work investigates and expands on notions of identity, otherness, language, boundary, exile and displacement. Through strategies of participation, his pieces address specific issues related to locational identity, global diaspora, and the limits (or overlapping) of personal/social, physical/mental, and political territories.

An artist with a distinguished international reputation, Teixeira focuses mainly on participatory and collaborative events, therefore incorporating multiple voices and subjects into his audiovisual projects.

The event—sponsored by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities— is free and open to the public. Registration is recommended.
