Art for Lunch - Interact with Art: Contemporary Sculpture

Dr. Peter Chesney is teaching urbanism and art/architecture history for Vanderbilt. He is a postdoc housed in the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities. For the first Art for Lunch after Spring Break 2024, he will lead visitors to the Fine Arts Gallery in a discussion and filmic sensing exercise involving Maz, an assemblage piece by sculptor John Chamberlain. Chesney has a background in the arts, including working in the development of a narrative series at Netflix and collaborating in staging a couple guerrilla site-specific performance pieces in Los Angeles. So, the exercise that he has planned will prompt visitors to create a collaborative art piece, cinematic and/or performative, that draws inspiration from Maz or even makes use of it.

This event will be held Tuesday, March 19, 2024 from 12:30-1:30pm in the Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery.
