Unpacking Art: Lunchtime Talks on Works in the SFU Art Collection is a speaker series that invites members of the SFU community to "unpack" the context and the questions raised by works of art in the collection.
Lief Hall is a composer, singer-songwriter, director/choreographer and creator of opera, musical theatre, video and installation. Her interdisciplinary installation and performance works explore themes of nature, technology and the body as they relate to mythology, feminism and the production of cultural ideology.
Hall was previously the vocalist for Vancouver no wave punk band 'Mutators' (2007), vocalist for the improvisational trio 'Glaciers' (2009), and one half of Canadian 'femme noir' pop duo MYTHS (2012). Lief Hall’s solo musical works include improvised and extended voice and experimental electronic 'pop' which integrates performance, video, photography and costume making.
This series encourages participation from audiences that are new to visual art and to the SFU Art Collection.
Unpacking Art is free and open to everyone. No advance preparation or registration is necessary. Bring your lunch.
