Visual Arts Lecture Series (VALS)—Fall 2021
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | A Visual Arts Lecture Series presentation by Calli Roche.
Calli Roche is an American artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Her current work is a material manifestation of internal diatribes; an attempt to instantiate stream of consciousness narratives and profound whims. Using personal and cultural histories both true and delusive, she creates artifacts to materialize inner monologues. Calli frequently works with reclaimed objects, wood, skins, and textiles. The materials take on different ontological significance in each work yet frequently reference the fraught relationships between violence, identity, and sexuality.
