T.J. Dedeaux-Norris: Artist Talk and Screening
Friday, October 8, 2021, 5:00 pm – 6:30 pmFree
Friday, October 8 at 5 p.m.
Artist talk and screening of Meka Jean | Still (a) Life at University Galleries.
University Galleries of Illinois State University is pleased to present T.J. Dedeaux-Norris: Second Line from August 4 through December 12, 2021. Split into two parts, this exhibition features over 45 works from multiple series spanning 16 years by artist, performer, and educator T.J. Dedeaux-Norris. Dedeaux-Norris critiques systems of race, sex, gender, religion, education, healthcare, and class, as well as the complexities of family dynamics and histories. Through their multidisciplinary practice, including painting, fiber, performance, video, and music, Dedeaux-Norris questions how these systems—and the visible and invisible trauma they induce—exploit people of color, women, Queer folx, and the elderly.
T.J. Dedeaux-Norris: Second Line is curated by Jessica Bingham, University Galleries’ curator. The exhibition and programming are sponsored in part by grants from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, Alice and Fannie Fell Trust, Harold K. Sage Foundation, and the Illinois State University Foundation Fund.
