About the artist:
Benjamin Patterson was a key figure in the international experimental artists' network Fluxus. His highly influential practice, combining music, visual arts, and performance, foregrounds the use of everyday materials, live action, and chance, and explores the notion of systems in art, music, and text. Like many of his Fluxus peers, he has also complicated and enriched the relationship between audience and performer, creating situations that demand direct engagement.
Please note that seating in the Lecture Hall is on a first-come, first-served basis with RSVP. There will be a simulcast in an adjacent room to accommodate overflow.
