ROSSELLA VASTA – Artist Talk
Sep 16, 2014
THE MSU SCHOOL OF ART PRESENTS VISITING ARTIST LECTURE
The School of Art at Montana State University presents a lecture by Rossella Vasta. Ms. Vasta is an internationally known artist from Perugia, Italy. She will be lecturing on her ongoing projectTable of Silence. This project began in 2007 as a collaboration with dancer Jacqulyn Buglisi and the Buglisi Dance Theatre as a way of commemorating the events of 9/11. It is described in the program notes as a “public tribute and prayer for peace.” The project is designed to let individuals reflect on the idea that we share the same space on earth and in a sense are invited to the same “table.” Ms. Vasta created 100 ceramic dishes that are used in the performance that includes more than 100 dancers.
The lecture will be at 7:00 p.m. in 215 Cheever Hall on the MSU campus. The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jeanne Wagner at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
