This Vocal Vessel: Conversations with Collaboration Performance

    • Friday, December 9, 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm and
    • Saturday, December 10, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

    The Zuckerman Museum of Art is pleased to present a live performance series of students in the special topics course, Site-specific Choreography, led by Professor of Dance Billy Hawkains III. The performance entitled, This Vocal Vessel: Conversations with Collaboration, was created over the course of the fall semester and was created to accompany the Zuckerman Museum of Art's fall exhibitions, Recollections Oscar Muñoz, and The Gravity of Beauty. The two special one-hour activations of the Museum’s galleries will take place on Friday, December 9, at 7:30 pm and Saturday, December 10, at 4:00 pm. 

    This experience is an exploration of the connection between the physical vessel and its interactions with the tangible and metaphysical elements of its reality. The bodies and spirits you are connecting with have embarked on a journey to ask, what does it mean to generate movement and exist within and without a space? Encapsulating this process, we arrange an interplay between ownership and collaboration. We offer a window into the ongoing process of how choreography manipulates the tools of inclusion and exclusion. The visceral fusion of static and dynamic art forms reveals pathways to new perceptions of our reality and their influence on this vessel

New Visions 2023 Opening Reception

  • Wednesday, January 18, 2023, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

    Join the Zuckerman Museum of Art in our Fine Arts Gallery on Wednesday, January 18, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm to celebrate the opening reception of the annual juried student exhibition, New Visions 2023, juried by Ben Butler.
    The New Visions exhibition series provides students across all disciplines of the School of Art and Design the ability to showcase their talent and skill. The newly revitalized series continues to offer students an annual juried exhibition opportunity as originated by the Visions Registered Student Organization, the first arts organization at KSU when the College of the Arts was founded. The ZMA is excited to continue expanding this longstanding tradition by featuring a prominent artist, critic, or curator to serve as both juror and visiting lecturer. These additional associations serve each respective discipline with visibility, exposing students to diverse points-of-view, practices, and techniques. Moreover, this approach acknowledges the internal and external associations of advanced learning through relevant engagements and dialogues among leading artists, curators, and critics.
