Exploring “Our Ark”: An Artist Talk with Kathryn Hamilton

Friday, Mar 18, 2022 at 6:00 pm

Location: Video Screening Amphitheater

Conversation and Q&A between MoMI’s Sonia Epstein and artist Kathryn Hamilton about the film Our Ark and accompanying gallery installation, Pieces of Ark, on display as part of First Look 2022.

Kathryn Hamilton, also known as Sister Sylvester, is an artist and sometimes a microbiologist who works in time-based multimedia forms, primarily theater, video, and VR. Sister Sylvester works with biology and technology to make cross-species collaborations and cyborg theater. Often, not always, these take the form of essayistic performances, using first-hand research, interviews and found documents, looking for dissonance and difficulty in text, image and sound. Recent work has been performed and exhibited at: MoCA Toronto; MUTEK Festival; National Sawdust, New York City; 601 Artspace NYC; Humboldt University, Berlin; Bozar, Brussels; Frascati, Amsterdam; Arcola Theater, London; The Public Theater, New York, The Park Avenue Armory, New York City; Bomontiada, Istanbul; Abrons Art Center, New York City. Residencies include: the Devised Theater Working Group, at The Public; The Public’s New Works program, at Brooklyn College; and The Park Avenue Armory.

Free with Museum admission.
