Visiting Artist Lecture Series

April 7, 2016 – 4:30pm – 6:00pm

UC Davis Department of Art and Art History, Art Studio Program is pleased to announce the fifth artist of our Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Charles Atlas

Charles Atlas has been a pioneering figure in film and video for over four decades. Atlas has extended the limits of his medium, forging new territory in a far-reaching range of genres, stylistic approaches, and techniques. Throughout his production, the artist has consistently fostered collaborative relationships, working intimately with such artists and performers as Leigh Bowery, Michael Clark, Douglas Dunn, Marina Abramovic, Yvonne Rainer, Mika Tajima/New Humans, Antony and the Johnsons, and most notably Merce Cunningham, for whom he served as in-house videographer for a decade, from the early 1970s through 1983; their close working relationship continued until Cunningham’s death in 2009. Atlas has lived and worked in New York City since the early 1970s.
