Woodward Lecture Series: vanessa german

March 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Wendell B. Anderson Auditorium, CCS Ford Campus

vanessa german is a self-taught citizen artist based in Pittsburgh, working across sculpture, performance, communal rituals, immersive installation, and photography.

Her practice proposes new models for social healing, utilizing creativity and tenderness as vital forces to reckon with the historical and ongoing catastrophes of structural racism, white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, resource extraction, and misogynoir. german’s artistic practice is also intertwined with and inextricable from her dedicated role in activism and community leadership, from her founding of the Love Front Porch arts initiative to the evolution of ARThouse, which combines a community studio, a large garden, an outdoor theatre, and an artist residency.
