New York-based artists Ann Hirsch and Jacolby Satterwhite join AUX Curatorial Fellow Jamillah James for a discussion of their respective bodies of work, both of which consider identities in flux, particularly as they exist in digital space. Both performers explore presentations of selfhood through technology—Hirsch through a series of webcam and live performances that reflect on the formation of sexual identity and desire in media, and Satterwhite through a series of videos, performances and installations that situate the familial and personal in a virtual fantasia of his own design.
Jamillah James is a New York-based curator who succeeds Marissa Perel, AUX's fall 2013 Curatorial Fellow. Over the course of two weekends in late May, James will present two performances, as well as an artist talk, and a keynote address and screening. June events will be announced at a later date.
