Visiting artist Dave Mackenzie lectures in Umphrey Lee 241 on Monday, February 18 at 6:30 PM McKenzie’s works, which are often manifested in video or performance, explore identity, race and public (re)presentation of self. His work is about vantage points of public representation and how these positions are open and available to slippages of interpretation. As such, McKenzie has frequently made use of his own likeness in his work, which straddles a world of humor and deep serious issues.
