Community lunch is an ongoing tradition at Mana Contemporary Chicago, where artists convene weekly to catch up, meet new people, and exchange ideas over lunch. Join us in this virtual lunch series where Chicago community director, Sarah Khalid Dhobhany, introduces two members from the Mana Contemporary community in conversation about what they’re doing and creating during this time.
This week, artists Amay Kataria and Philip Mulliken join us for lunch.
New Delhi-born Amay Kataria holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His practice interrogates posthuman existence in a society where technology has become a socio-political body of governance. He was a visiting artist at Bellas Artes Outpost, the Ethereal Summit, and ThoughtWorks; and a new media artist-in-residence at Art Center Nabi. Kataria has exhibited at Ars Electronica, Art Center Nabi, Electromuseum, Experimental Sound Studio, TIFA India, and ThoughtWorks, among others.
Philip Mulliken is a new media artist, writer, and perpetual student of literature. He holds an MFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in English literature from the University of Maryland. Mulliken works between writing, high definition computer graphics, and sculpture to speak of the incessant push-and-pull between the spectacular, immaterial nature of virtual images, and the banal nature of the things that sit just beneath them.
