The Shelburne County Arts Council will present Lucas Morneau in its second “Art Talk” on Thursday, September 15th at 7:30 PM.
Lucas Morneau is an interdisciplinary artist who promises to be very engaging. Going by the pronouns they, them and their, Morneau describes their work in this way: “Through drag and masquerade like their alter-ego, The QueerMummer, their work explores gender performativity with issues surrounding hegemonic masculinity and its effect on gender expression and identity. Employing several mediums, including but not limited to photography, fibre art, performance, video, installation, printmaking, and sculpture to deconstruct homophobic and transphobic attitudes still prevalent throughout Western culture.”
If you are intrigued by this description of their art practice, Lucas Morneau’s Art Talk will make all clear, with accompanying slides and demonstrations on Thursday, September 15th at 7:30 PM at the Osprey. This event is free, although donations to the Shelburne County Arts Council will be used to continue its work for the arts in Shelburne County. There will be a chance to meet Morneau in the lobby after their talk, a chance to ask further questions, while celebrating this event.
In June, the Council presented Norwegian Performance Artist Stein Henningsen to a large and appreciative audience. This is the second in a series of Art Talks. Stay tuned for more.
