  • Dear Moheb, I'm so glad you're asking me to write to you. You've been in Tulsa so long now it was a pleasure-shock to hang out with you after your residency presentation at the M. (I'm just going to say this whole shortening of names to initials thing for institutions is degrading and exploitative, right, J.Lo?) It was so odd to have you appear almost as a stranger.  I want to have you back here in town. I want more people who make things that I can talk to. And (I'm going to make up a stalking…
  • Charles Campbell updated the Artwork APPETITE
    APPETITE was an experiment in performance using the principle of audio feedback as a creative tool made live in collaboration between Skewed Visions co-founder Charles Campbell and composer/sound designer Ted Moore.

It is estimated that 90% of the units will remain unoccupied for more than 10 months a year…
  • Charles Campbell updated the Artwork Losing Kantor
    Tadeusz Kantor was an influential and uncompromisingly radical visual artist and theater-maker born in Poland in 1925. His drawings, paintings, objects, writings, theories, and performances continue to influence many artists internationally, and were always a personal response to the time and place in which he lived. Kantor was celebrated around on his centenary in 2015. Here in Minneapolis, his thinking has been one of the major influences on the work of Skewed Visions since our formation ove…
