Artist Talk: Vanessa Dion Fletcher
April 2, 2019 @ 12:00 pm
Vanessa Dion Fletcher is a Potawatomi and Lenape two-spirit artist who draws upon her role as a woman in a colonial world to create performances that challenge preconceived notions of identity. In this lunchtime talk, Fletcher will present an overview of her non-performance work, which incorporates materials such as porcupine quills, Wampum belts, and menstrual blood to reveal the complexities of what defines a body physically and culturally. The event is free and open to the public from 12:00-1:30 p.m. Lunch is provided. Seating is limited and will be offered on a first-come, first served basis.
Fletcher will also perform at CC at 6 p.m. More
