Catherine Sullivan at Boston University

  • Boston University, College of Fine Arts 855 Commonwealth Avenue Boston, MA 02215 (map)

Catherine Sullivan creates ensemble work in film, theater, and visual art. She is concerned with the ways in which history is projected through the body, and with questions of redress in American social life. Performers in her works cope with written texts, stylistic economies, re-enactments of historic performances, gestural and choreographic regimes, and conceptual orthodoxies. Solo exhibitions, collaborations, performances and films have been presented at venues such as the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Tate Monden, London; Secession, Vienna; Cricoteka, Krakow; Volksbühne, Berlin; Berlin International Film Festival; and BFI London Film Festival. Notable awards include The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, Herb Alpert Award in the Arts, Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst, United States Artists Walker Fellowship and a Chicago Dancemakers Forum Lab Artist Award. 

Part of the Tuesday Night MFA Lecture Series at Boston University School of Visual Arts.

"This event is sponsored by Boston University’s MFA program in Sculpture and Harvard University’s Department of Visual and Environmental Studies.”
