Media advisory covering Performance artist Tim Miller, who will perform SEX/BODY/SELF.

WHAT:           Lecture and performance by international performance artist WHEN:           7 p.m. Thursday, (Oct. 2) WHERE:         Room 169 of the Human Sciences Building on the Texas Tech campus. EVENT:          Performance artist Tim Miller will perform SEX/BODY/SELF. The event includes a pre-show exhibition of student work/performance, followed by Tim Miller's lecture/performance and discussion with the audience. Miller will also be available to undergraduate and graduate students for an informal workshop on Oct. 3rd. Miller was one of the NEA Four; four performance artists who had his funding by the National Endowment for the Arts overtly vetoed in 1990 by NEA chair John Frohnmayer on the basis of his subject matter. This resulted in a winning lawsuit by artists that caused the NEA to cease funding to individual artists. He has taught performance in the theater departments at University of California at Los Angeles, California State at Los Angeles and New York University. The Association of Creative Writing will sponsor this event, which is free and open to the public.
