Jose Carlos Teixeira — the Champney Family Professor of Art, CWRU & Cleveland Institute of Art — will present his recent interdisciplinary and multi-media-based research explorations. His work investigates and expands on notions of identity, otherness, language, boundary, exile and displacement. Through strategies of participation, his pieces address specific issues related to locational identity, global diaspora, and the limits (or overlapping) of personal/social, physical/mental, and political territories. An artist with a distinguished international reputation, Professor Teixeira focuses mainly on participatory and collaborative events, therefore incorporating multiple voices and subjects into his audiovisual projects.
