The students of GSU’s Performance Arts class have been hard at work creating their own original pieces to display in our library. Starting on October 23rd, five students will have the opportunity to set up their own gallery space to showcase their artistic talents. These four art installations will be displayed in the GSU Library’s Skylight Gallery. The theme of these pieces will be exploring the history of performance art and will include interactive features to engage the audience and create a truly touching experience.

“Performance Art is a course designed as a survey of the origins, influences, and manifestations of the genre. There is a focus on political artwork from a multicultural, feminist, and sexuality perspective. Students are asked to apply the genre’s key ideas in the creation of their own performance work, including an installation to be staged for the public. The Skylight Gallery is an appropriate location to stage student work, especially of this kind, since the library is the intellectual center of a campus community. Our Skylight Gallery is a beautiful, open space that will nicely facilitate a dialogue between the student-artists and our GSU community,” says Patrick Santoro, the professor of Performance Arts class.

The first exhibit is up October 23rd through October 27th. Debbie Burk’s Reflection

Her summary of the piece is as follows: “Whether it is a physical or an internal reflection, reflection speaks to, informs, hides, exposes, reveals, convolutes, contorts, confuses, exposes, illuminates, enlightens. How do you see yourself? How do you see others? How do you see how others see you? How do others see how others see themselves? It is in exploring these questions that this project was born”.
