Center Space Project presents American Robot: A Conversation Between Bucky and Cory
Photographers Cory Fitzgerald and Bucky Miller sit down in the gallery to have an informal conversation about their exhibition Reverse Image/Search Asteroid. Since the human Cory Fitzgerald lives in upstate New York and is busy teaching, the robot Cory Fitzgerald will speak in his place. Audience should rest assured that robot Cory has been programmed with all of human Cory’s wit and memory. Other robots are encouraged to attend.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Reverse Image/Search Asteroid, on view September 23 – October 14.
Reverse Image/Search Asteroid is organized by Center Space Project, the student arts organization of the VAC, which oversees Center Space, an exhibition space within the VAC that showcases the artistic and curatorial work of undergraduate and graduate students at The University of Texas at Austin. Generous support for Center Space Project comes from Robin and Trey Hancock.
