An Evening with Charles Atlas

Monday, February 18, 2013, 7:00 p.m.
Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2

New York–based media artist Charles Atlas (American, b. 1949) discusses his creative development, the intertwining of social scenes and art, and his preoccupation with process. Since the early 1970s, Atlas has collaborated with artists, musicians, and dancers—Merce Cunningham, Antony and the Johnsons, Michael Clark, and Mika Tajima, to name just a few—to create films, video installations, and live events that explore “in-between states of identity.” He discusses his recent work, including Joints Array (2011), Ocean (2011), and, most recently, 143652 (2012), in which numbers move across a wall-sized projection as if in a digital ballet.
