Performance with Walter Scott

Thursday 23 January 2020
7-9 pm

A multi-person cast featuring images, voice and sound.

Experience a whole new side of Walter Scott’s work as he takes the stage with a three-person live performance featuring voice, images, and sound. The performance is free and open to all.

Wendy Goes to Hell will be a live reading of currently unreleased, in-progress material from the next Wendy graphic novel. Wendy, a new student in University of Hell’s Master of Fine Arts program, contends with her new small-town life, classmates with clashing personalities, and tenured professors who deeply question her interpretation of Lacan. Featuring a club scene set in Berlin, and artworks about urine, Wendy Goes to Hell is a satirical cross-section of the experience of a Masters level fine arts education.

Walter Scott is an interdisciplinary artist working across comics, drawing, video, performance and sculpture. His comic series, Wendy, chronicles the continuing misadventures of a young artist in a satirical version of the contemporary art world. Recent exhibitions include Who Isn’t She? A Wendy Retrospective, at Galerie UQO (Gatineau), Slipping on the Missing X, Macaulay Fine Art (Vancouver), and Betazoid in a Fog, Walter’s first museum solo presentation, in 2018, at the Remai Modern in Saskatoon. Scott is this year’s Stonecroft Artist-in-Residence.

THE ANNUAL STONECROFT ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM, made possible by Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts, began in 2017. These extended creative residencies have become central to our contemporary art program: they deepen access to artistic process, support creation and spark enduring relationships with leading artists.
