An Italian-born artist who lives in New York City makes his Iowa debut this week with an exhibit that’s both visual and “performance” art. Lucio Pozzi says his work called “Indoor Games” is divided into several sections on red, blue, yellow and green walls. In addition to the large-format photographs of infants and images of war that are juxtaposed on either side of the gallery, Pozzi says there will be live-actor/artists on stage, in offices and in the midst of the audience. The actor/artists will be doing pantomimes which he says have no specific meaning and that are open to interpretation by the public. The 67-year-old Pozzi, who’s considered a pioneer of performance art, says he’s eager to have the show open and to hear what Iowans think of it. The exhibit opens Friday at Drake University’s Anderson Gallery in Des Moines and will be on display through December 19th. For more information, surf to “www.drake.edu/andersongallery/pozzi.html”.
