AUX Curatorial Fellow Jamillah James lectures about her residency and introduces her recent projects and ongoing research, including an expanded reprisal of her 2013 performative lecture, "Comic Relief: On Art, Film and Television."
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.
Immediately following James' lecture will be "Made for Television," a screening of a video works that reflect on the legacy of early video's disruption and appropriation of televisual narratives, staging and tropes, as well as the current state of television programming, as it slinks towards obsolescence in the digital age.
