Witness Lab Event: Artist Reflections with Courtney McClellan: Witnessing as an Artistic Act

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Click here to register.

Witness Lab is a project of Roman Witt Artist-in-Residence, Courtney McClellan. It is part museum exhibit, part performance art, part research project, which seeks to understand and illuminate the intersection of performance and the law. During the run of the project, classes investigating different aspects of the courts and our legal system, as well as performances of mock trials and trial scenes, have all taken part in creating and shaping the Witness Lab project. McClellan will discuss her findings from this form of research.  She will focus her conversation on the art museum and the University of Michigan as a site specific places in which to make art. 

Witness Lab is presented in partnership with the Roman J. Witt Artist in Residence Program of the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, with lead support provided by the University of Michigan Law School and Office of the Provost.
