Deejaying with turntables might be retro, but that hasn’t stopped one artist who’s visiting campus today.
Today, sound artist and experimental turntablist Maria Chávez will be performing and speaking in Athens.
Chávez will give a talk today from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Seigfred Hall and will perform later tonight at ARTS/WEST from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
Chávez, who is originally from Lima, Peru, is based in New York City, and has published a book chronicling her 10 years as an abstract turntable artist. “Accidents, coincidence and failures are themes that unite her sound sculptures,” according to the Ohio University Calendar of Events.
