The Tarble is proud to partner with EIU’s Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program to host the Camille Compo Lecture Series with 2022 guest speaker Jeanne Dunning. Dunning’s photographic, sculptural, and video work explores our relationship to physicality, looking at the strange and unfamiliar in the body, gender, notions of normativity, and death.
Jeanne Dunning's photographic, sculptural, and video work explores our relationship to our own physicality, looking at the strange and unfamiliar in the body, gender, ideas about normalcy, and, most recently, death. Her work has been shown extensively throughout the United States and Europe since the mid-1980s. It has been included in major group exhibitions such as the Whitney Biennial, the Sydney Biennale, and the Venice Biennale. She has had one person shows at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C.; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago; the Konstmuseet in Malmö, Sweden; The Wattis Institute in San Francisco; and The Berkeley Art Museum, as well as at numerous commercial and not-for-profit galleries throughout the world. She is currently a professor in the Department of Art Theory and Practice at Northwestern University.
Camille Compo began her career at EIU in the Office of Budget and Planning, retiring in 2001 as an Administrative Assistant to the Vice President of External Relations. The Camille Compo Lecture Series has been made possible by the estate of Camille Compo to honor her passion for learning, the arts, and her longtime commitment to EIU Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program.
