2018-2019 Visiting Artists

Genevieve Gaignard is coming to CSU Chico with a new lecture and workshop/demo, all free and open to the public! (PDF)

Genevieve Gaignard is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work focuses on installation, photographic self-portraiture, and sculpture to explore race, femininity, class as well as their various intersections. The daughter of a black father and white mother, Gaignard’s youth was marked by a strong sense of invisibility. Was her family white enough to be white? Black enough to be black? Gaignard interrogates notions of “passing” in an effort to address these questions. She positions her own female body as the chief site of exploration—challenging viewers to navigate the powers and anxieties of intersectional identity.

Artist Lecture: Thursday, February 21st, 2019 at 5:30pm

Location: Performing Arts Center Room 134
