Cheryl Donegan is one of the leading voices in contemporary art whose work frequently moves between the worlds of video and painting. She is especially well known for a series of video works from the early '90s, including Head (1993) and Kiss My Royal Irish Ass (1993) that were blistering attacks on the dominant paradigms of the female body in art. Donegan will present examples of her videos and paintings and perform her work Blood Sugar (2013). Following, CAMH Director Bill Arning will lead a discussion with Donegan.
Donegan is a featured artist in Outside the Lines: UIA (Unlikely Iterations of the Abstract), curated by Arning.
