Provocations Performance: Michael Demps
November 23, 4:00 pm // November 24, 3:00 pm
Michael Demps is an interdisciplinary artist, musician, and DJ. A graduate of the Yale School of Art, he now serves on the sculpture faculty at VCUarts, and was recently included in “Fictions”, an exhibition of emerging artists at The Studio Museum in Harlem. His sculptures have incorporated candle wax, magnetic marbles, rock salt, and low frequency sounds. His performance as part of Rashid Johnson’s “Monument” will draw on his experiences as a vinyl collector, with a collection that numbers over 5,000 records.
