You are invited to a panel-like discussion of TJ Norris’ Spread Ego, his performative installation at PLACE. Norris’ project raises questions of vulnerability, trust, risk-taking, and acceptance and these topics and more will be addressed during the discussion.
MODERATOR(s): Gabe Flores and Palma Corral
PLAYERS: Cynthia Mosser, Gabriel Liston, Becca Bernstein, Gwenn Seemel, Horia Bobia, Laurie Danial
SUBJECT: TJ Norris
“What I am most interested in emerging in Spread Ego is a sense of letting go of my own image to a sense of trust, acceptance, perspective and gaze. In these works artists are fully allowed license to fill certain gaps, flaws included. As I age my body changes and things find settle and disruption. Spread Ego incites and embraces that change.” - TJ Norris
The discussion will begin promptly at 4pm.

Walking through People’s during the opening last night at The Settlement: Occupation. Chris Haberman and Jason Brown really did a fantastic job of creating a really active gallery space. Alex Cummings is managing the gallery and there are big plans for this gorgeous space.
