Please join us this Friday, May 9, from 7 - 8 PM at the Structural & Materials Engineering Building Performance Space for a performance by Kembra Phfahler and VisArts graduate students and alums.

Kembra Pfahler is an artist and musician, best known as the painted lead singer of The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, a theatrical death rock band she co-founded in 1990. The band uses music, drawings and films to spread a clear message of love in a beautiful, tsuristic, anti-natural, fearless and happy way to dispel the antiquated notion that there is a hierarchy of artistic mediums. In her art and music, Pfahler follows the philosophy of availabism — making the best of what’s available. This is apparent in the low tech props and homemade costumes the Girls of Karen Black don on stage and which fill Pfahler’s exhibition installations.

This performance will be the culmination of a workshop led by Pfahler, including Matt Savitsky, Kate Clark, Elmira Mohebali, Artemisa Clark, Dominic Miller, Angie Jennings, Angela Washko, Elle Mehrmand, Ash Eliza Smith and Vabianna Santos.
