Ben Cuevas Artist's Talk

  • Smith Laboratory, Room 2144 174 West 18th Avenue Columbus, OH, 43210 (map)

Ben Cuevas is a multimedia artist who works in the areas of fiber arts, performance and installation. Influenced by feminist and queer theory, he often explores the theme of embodiment from his perspective as a queer, HIV-positive person of color. Cuevas is well known for his intricate and anatomically-accurate knitted sculptures of body parts which allude to medical discourses on the body and to traditional notions of women’s craft. During his presentation at OSU, he will discuss the trajectory of his work and the various social and political issues that inform his praxis as an artist.
