Performative Artist Talk: Shedding Light on Memory & the Occupied Body

In an evening of performance, video presentation and narrative, Uyehara shares highlights from her repertoire that challenge and inform her as an artist. She traces her early solo work in Asian American queer-identified identity, through her years with the Sacred Naked Nature Girls, to her expansion into new territory linking her community to experiences in Native American, Arab American and Muslim communities, and a recent site-specific project at sites of deportation in Tucson Arizona.

Talk is followed by reception and discussion with students and community.
