[ISEA2014] Artist Statement: Sheryl Oring – ROLE MODEL

Artist Statement

Role Model performances pose the question: What can Dubai teach the world?, while the installation shows answers from shows done in Russia and Brazil.  sheryloring.org/role-model

  • Sheryl Oring examines critical social issues through projects that incorporate old and new media to tell stories, examine public opinion and foster open exchange. Using tools typically employed by journalists (the camera, the typewriter, the pen, the interview and the archive) she builds on experience in her former profession to create installations, performances, artist books and internet-based works that address themes of citizenship, free expression, first amendment rights, story-telling and activism through art.  sheryloring.org
