Kerry Tribe: The Talking Dead: Index, Amnesia and the Afterlife of Film
@ The Mary and Leigh Block Museum
40 Arts Cir Dr, Evanston, IL 60208
Opening Wednesday, May 14th, at 6PM
Tribe’s film, video and installation works are meditations on cognition, using image, text, and sound to explore what she calls “the phenomenology of memory.” Often working with multiple projections and timed loops, her installations are designed to structurally underscore the content of her work. Tribe’s fascination with the literal mechanics of moving images suggests that the medium is capable of mirroring cognitive processes in profoundly generative ways. – Corinna Peipon Tribe’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at The Power Plant in Toronto, Modern Art, Oxford, Camden Arts Centre in London and Arnolfini in Bristol. It has been included in recent exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum in New York and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. Tribe is a recipient of a Creative Capital grant and a USA Artists Award. She received her MFA from UCLA in 2002. Tribe lives and works in Los Angeles. This lecture is part of the Art Theory and Practice Visiting Artist Lecture Series, and is made possible with generous support from The Myers Foundations. It is free and open to the public.
