CVC Workshop: “These Unruly and Ungovernable Selves”

Tuesday, April 27, 2021
11:00 AM CST Zoom Meeting

*To attend the workshop and receive a link to the Zoom meeting, please RSVP to cvc@mailplus.wisc.edu. All are welcome!


Michelle Handelman take us under the skin of her collaborative writing and performance process. Her talk focuses on her deep dive research process, improvisational directing, and kindly wrangling superstars.


MICHELLE HANDELMAN uses video, live performance and photography to make confrontational works that that push against the boundaries of gender, race and sexuality. Raised during the late 1960s, Handelman split her time between Chicago, where her mother was a fixture in the art world, and Los Angeles, where her father was a player in the sex industry. Her art developed through great struggle and loss throughout the era of the AIDS crisis and over the years Handelman has voraciously traversed all these worlds, developing a body of work that investigates ways of looking at the forbidden and revealing the dark, subconscious layers of outsider agency.
