Performance: Meg Leary
400 S. Peoria St.
For this performance, Meg Leary will perform in her DivaDome costume currently on view in the Making Chances exhibition. The performance is modeled on the traditional concert performance style but will incorporate media, lights, and objects in expanded ways. This piece is a continuation of Leary’s project on the role of the opera diva in popular culture and as a representation of gender fluidity.
Meg Leary began her artistic career as a classical vocalist, which has since become the foundation for the visual and performative work she now produces. Between 2007 and 2012, she has been developing a series of works based on music theory techniques using music materials such as cassette tape and vinyl records.
