The UNLV Department of Art Visiting Artist Lecture Series, presents Bruce McClure in a projector performance.
The New York based performer graduated with a degree in Architecture in 1985 and worked as a residential Architecture for over two decades, becoming interested in cinematic performance pursuits in 1994. The Walker Art Center describes McClure’s 2009 projector performance as a “totally sensory experience […] informed by the way the brain reacts to light and sound. Using an array of modified 16mm projectors, film loops, and guitar pedals, his work challenges cinematic conventions. Film loops patterned with patches of emulsion on a translucent base are combined with an optical soundtrack to create a physically intense adventure.” McClure has performed in numerous venues within the U.S. including the Walker Art Center and Whitney Biennale; as well internationally in Canada, Europe, UK, and Australia.
Earplugs are advised.
