Madonna Subject of HCC Performance
In Conjunction with Warhol Exhibit
October 14 at 4 p.m.

BRIDGEPORT - Emerging artist Trisha Baga will perform Madonna y El Niño October 14 at Housatonic Community College.

Madonna began her career when Andy Warhol’s was waning, but they crossed paths and their social circles overlapped.  Madonna, like Warhol, is also a consummate self-creation, inventing and reinventing herself over decades.

The event is being held in conjunction with In the company of…, an exhibit at the college’s Housatonic Museum of Art that features selections from the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Project and the work contemporary artists whose social scenes inform their work.

Baga’s multi-media performance includes humorously and smartly manipulated videos of Madonna in concert, projected computer screens, and Baga’s live interaction with the media that streams from her Mac onto the wall behind her.  

The energy of nature in El Niño and the energy of changing personas Madonna exudes inform this work.

The performance begins at 4:00 pm in the Burt Chernow Galleries in Lafayette Hall at the college. HCC is located at 900 Lafayette Blvd. in downtown Bridgeport, less than 150 yards off I-95 (Exit 27) and Rte. 8 (Exit 1), a block from the Arena at Harbor Yard. Parking is available in the Housatonic garage at no charge.

The Housatonic Museum of Art is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Thursday evenings until 7 p.m.,  Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 3 p.mm and Sunday from Noon until 4 p.m.
