Listen: Improvisational art event evokes memories of 1960s

Vanderbilt students, faculty and other interested individuals came together recently for a unique improvisational art experience directed by renowned artist Oliver Herring. Participants worked with Herring to create a so-called TASK event on a Sunday afternoon in the Ingram Art Studio. With each TASK, Herring invites people to join him a specific time and place. Participants contribute their ideas for the project into a pool. Each idea selected is then interpreted as the participants choose, using different props and materials. Following the TASK at Vanderbilt, Ian Berry, Tang Museum associate director; and Vanderbilt Assistant Professor of Art Vesna Pavlovic moderated a conversation between Herring and the public. The conversation was the first in a series of new Art Klatch at Vanderbilt events.
