February 20 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Museum of Natural and Cultural History

In this farcical, intentionally inept Powerpoint presentation, Portland's premier drag clown Carla Rossi dons her persona as Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Metaphysical & Digestive Clown Research to offer findings on the art world, camp aesthetics, and (naturally) their correlation to ancient human sacrifice. You'll laugh along as Carla lampoons the sometimes disingenuous realm of art theory and inspires us to think about why we look at art and its subjects the way we do. The performance will be followed by a longer, sincere artist talk—with Anthony Hudson taking over from underneath the clown makeup—followed by Q&A and conversation with the audience, for a two-hour total engagement.

Cosponsored by the University of Oregon Office of the President, LGBT Education and Support Services, Department of Art, and Department of the History of Art and Architecture, with additional support from Carolee von Shillagh.  

Included with regular admission; free for MNCH members and UO ID card holders. Show your Oregon Trail or other EBT card for an admission discount.
