In conjunction with John Bowles’ fall graduate seminar, the Art Department brought Clifford Owens to the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, for a two week residency, November 2-13, 2009. As the Hanes Visiting Artist, Owens created two performances of Photographs with an Audience for the Process theater series, staged a series of actions in the Alumni Sculpture Garden and elsewhere across campus, presented a public lecture, and met with graduate students working on the African American Performance Art Archive.
