New York–based artist Suzanne Bocanegra channels her work through the actress Frances McDormand in this combination artist talk and performance. Exploring beauty, small town Texas, orthopedic surgery, and classical sculpture, Bocanegra and McDormand weave a tale of Titian, ballet, girls’ drill teams, rose queens, scoliosis, and the history of how artists are taught to make art.
