CONTAGIOUS ALLEGORIES: ART, FILM, HORROR, AND SPECTATORSHIP
CONNECTIVE CONVERSATIONS (THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON) LECTURE
The University of Oregon, Portland, Oregon | May 21, 2015
Lecture and visiting curator
The lecture “Contagious Allegories: art, film, horror and spectatorship” addresses the infectious relationship between contemporary art and cinema. Beginning with the reciprocal kinship between horror film and visual art, Coleman traces her own transition from the art world to the film community by discussing her research on artists who have been influenced by horror film, the role of art objects in movies, and how the theatrical exhibition of artist-made films is changing the cinema space. The talk is inspired by the essay “Contagious Allegories George Romero” by Steven Shaviro (1993).
The University of Oregon School of Architecture and Allied Arts in partnership with The Ford Family Foundation is pleased to announce the continuation of the Curator and Critic Tours and Lectures program, Connective Conversations | Inside Oregon Art for the 2015-2016 season.
Connective Conversations is the seventh and final element of The Ford Family Foundation’s Visual Arts Program’s Curator and Critic Tours and Lectures that invites professionals from outside the Northwest region to join in community conversations.
