An Online Event

Zoom
Contact: Erin Hanas, (402) 472-3541, erin.hanas@unl.edu
Join artist Amanda Ross-Ho and University of Nebraska professors Mary Alice Casto and Anna Henson for a cross-disciplinary conversation about “Gone Tomorrow,” a sculpture in which Ross-Ho recreated a single gold earring at monumental scale. The work was recently purchased by Sheldon Museum of Art, where it is featured in the exhibition “The Scene Changes.”

The online discussion of the sculpture will touch on fashion, material culture, storytelling, and more.

Amanda Ross-Ho is an artist and professor of art at Claire Trevor School of the Arts at the University of California, Irvine. Her work draws from a broad hierarchy of structures, mapping connectivity within the overlapping ecologies of personal and universal phenomena. Her evolving personal language combines forensic and theatrical gestures, diagramming the reflexive relationships between production, presentation, and the social contracts of viewership.

Mary Alice Casto is an assistant professor of textiles, merchandising, and fashion design in the College of Education and Human Sciences. Her research interests are in the areas of aesthetics, history, material culture, and social-psychological aspects of dress and appearance.

Anna Henson is an artist and assistant professor of practice in emerging media arts in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Art. She works in embodied and social interaction design for spatial computing and immersive experiences that unite our digital and physical worlds. Her creative research focuses on XR (mixed reality), volumetric capture, and new forms of storytelling.
