Lynn Hershman Leeson in Conversation with Anne Balsamo

Oct 7, 2017 At Marlene Nathan Meyerson Auditorium

One of the most influential media artists, Lynn Hershman Leeson is widely recognized for her innovative work investigating issues that are now recognized as key to the workings of society: the relationship between humans and technology, identity, surveillance, and the use of media as a tool of empowerment against censorship and political repression. Over the last forty years she has made pioneering contributions to the fields of photography, video, film, performance, installation and interactive as well as net-based media art.

Anne Balsamo’s work focuses on entanglement of culture and technology, to focus critically on the implications of emerging technologies across domains of human life.  Her book, Designing Culture: The Technological Imagination at Work (Duke, 2011) examines the relationship between culture and technological innovation, with a particular focus on the role of the humanities in cultural innovation. She currently serves as the Dean of the School of Arts, Technology and Emerging Communication at the University of Texas at Dallas.

This My Life in Art lecture is free as a part of Community Days during our Grand Re-Opening.
