Illustrated Lecture: Robin Gee, choreographer and Andrew Hayes, sculptor

Sunday, May 6, 2 PM

Free, limited seating: preregister online, or 910-395-5999, and at CAM Visitor Services desk

Delve into the body of work of artists Robin Gee and Andrew Hayes whose works are currently on view in CAM’s exhibition North Carolina Arts Council Artist Fellowship 2017 Award Exhibition. Robin Gee specializes in African, Caribbean, and Modern dance techniques, weaving power and inspiration from the living traditions of African dance and music within her own personal culture, history and American context of race, place and belonging. Andrew Hayes grew up in Tucson, Arizona and studied sculpture at Northern Arizona University. The desert landscape inspired his early work and style in fabricated steel, informing his current work while exploring a variety of materials and techniques including the book as a form.

Treat yourself and take a workshop with Robin Gee (“Dance and the Camera”) or Andrew Hayes (“The Book As Material”) May 4-6 through CAM’s Museum School, register online or by phone. Workshop registration includes seats to this lecture.
