Senga Nengudi

The UCCS Gallery of Contemporary Art (GOCA) was proud to present a major exhibition in our campus GOCA1420 space -  Senga Nengudi: Improvisational Gestures. The exhibition was co-produced with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver, and is curated by Elissa Auther (Windgate Research Curator, Museum of Arts and Design and Bard Graduate Center) and Nora Burnett Abrams (Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver). 

As part of the university's 50th anniversary marking, GOCA celebrated the work of long-time UCCS Visual Art faculty member (1998-2009) and internationally lauded multi-media and performance artist Senga Nengudi.  This exhibition was the first survey of Nengudi's R.S.V.P. sculptures, performances, and related works from the 1970s to the present and included an accompanying catalog publication.
