McDaniel College’s Department of Art and Art History will present a visiting artist lecture by Ben Hall on Tuesday, March 20 at 7:00 p.m. in Peterson Hall Room 104. The lecture, which is sponsored by Ars Nova, the College’s art club, is free and open to the public.
Sculptor and composer Ben Hall creates installations incorporating durational performances, existing objects and indeterminacy. Hall received his Bachelor of Arts from Bennington College and his Master of Fine Arts from Columbia University. His practice includes curating Baptizum.com, the world’s largest online Black American spiritual collection. Hall also produces new American improvisation on his LP label brokenresearch, including the last small group recordings of visionary trumpeter and composer Bill Dixon. Hall has written for The Wire and BOMB and has performed at INSTAL in Glasgow, Scotland; the Museum of Modern Art in New York City; and kunstenentrum BELGIE in Belgium.
