Gone and Coming/Visual Art: A Talk By Dorothy Cross
As part of the Lowell Humanities Series, Irish artist Dorothy Cross discusses her site-specific work—featured in a spring 2005 exhibit titled Gone at Boston College's McMullen Museum of Art—and presents images from her work in other media. Cross's past projects include Chiasm, a combination of film projection and live opera performed in two handball alleys overlooking Galway Bay on the Irish coast; and Ghost Ship, a luminescent vessel temporarily moored in Dublin's Dun Loaghaire Harbour.
Cross is introduced by Nancy Netzer, director of the McMullen Museum of Art and professor of art history; Isolde Moylan, Ireland's consul general in Boston; and Robin Lydenberg, the Boston College English professor who wrote the companion book for the exhibition Gone.
