Cayla Skillin-Brauchle will present her solo exhibition and performance of “Data Driven” on Thursday, November 2 at 5:15 p.m. in the Sleeth Gallery in McCuskey Hall. An artist lecture will immediately follow.
Skillin-Brauchle will use data collected this week to incorporate into her performance on Thursday. Her exhibit will run through November 24.
“In my transdisciplinary practice, I produce interactive, multi-faceted events and performance that provide audiences and myself with space to consider complex ideas such as ownership of possessions and ownership over individual or collect thoughts,” stated Skillin-Brauchle. “During these events, I act as facilitator, medium, or perhaps cultural worker, exercising acute listening, often performing absurd tasks designed to make audiences feel at ease.”
Skillin-Brauchle is a visual artist whose transdisciplinary practice spans drawing, video, installation, performance, and social practice. Her work has been shown at numerous international and national venues including Artspace Mackay in Queensland, Australia; the Rotunda Gallery in Bangkok, Thailand; ROY G BIV Gallery in Columbus, OH; the Sir JJ School of Art, Mumbai, India; and 621 Gallery in Tallahassee, FL. Skillin-Brauchle has been awarded residencies at Iskra Print Collective, VT Studio Center, and most recently the Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences. Having earned a BA from Beloit College in 2006 and an MFA from Ohio University in Athens, OH in 2012, Skillin-Brauchle was a 2012-1013 Fulbright Fellow in Mumbai, India. Skillin-Brauchle has taught at Ohio University, Spudnik Press (Chicago, IL), Whitman College (Walla Walla, WA), and is an Assistant Professor of Art at Willamette University in Salem, OR.
