San Francisco artist Pamela Z presents an exhibition and performance that examines connections between people and their worldly possessions. This intermedia work focuses on the concept of baggage in all of its literal and metaphysical permutations. Ms. Z applies sonic and visually layered imagery accompanied by live vocals channeled electronically to construct a multi-sensory experience. The work explores concepts of baggage as both impediment and as treasure. Based on her personal experience of living between places, Ms. Z interrogates the kinds of attachments associated with locality. Issues such as loss, insecurity, and treasure are brought to light. Best known for her solo performances that combine experimental voice techniques with percussion and spoken word, Pamela Z creates a multi-layered installation and lively solo performance at Krannert Art Museum.

Sponsored by Illinois Arts Council, a State Agency; Krannert Art Museum Director's Circle; and Krannert Art Museum Council.
