Event Horizon: Hybridity


Susan Rotilie


April 6, 2009

Institution Walker Art Center

This set includes works from the Walker Art Center's Event Horizon installation that are examples of hybridity in artistic practice. It first explores cultural hybridity in the work of artists who move among different cultures in their lives. The second section highlights artists who combine media in their work, resuting in material hybridity.

Each work of art is introduced by discussion questions. Users can find background information about each work by clicking the "More Info" button at the bottom of each slide. For even more information about the works in Event Horizon, refer to Event Horizon: A Study Set.

This and four other Event Horizon sets explore the installation through the lenses of five elements of contemporary art: appropriation, hybridity, performance, space, and time.  Visitors can use this set to create their own thematic tour of the exhibition or generate a discussion on what hybridity means in the practices of artists working today.
