Image and Amnesia with Kerry Tribe
Presented by the Berkeley Center for New Media's Art, Technology, and Culture Colloquium series and the Department of Art Practice. Sponsored by Berkeley Arts + Design as part of Arts + Design Mondays.
Free and open to the public. No ticket required. Doors open at 6pm and lecture starts at 6:30pm.
Kerry Tribes work in film, video, installation and other media raises questions about the elusive and ephemeral aspects of human experience including memory, empathy and linguistic communication. Often working with multiple projections and timed loops, her projects are designed to structurally underscore their content. Tribes fascination with the literal mechanics of moving images suggests that the medium is capable of mirroring cognitive processes in profoundly generative ways. In this lecture, she considers some of the ways in which art, technology and the moving image can sensitize viewers to their own and others experiences.
Kerry Tribe was born in 1973 in Boston, MA and lives and works in Los Angeles. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; 356 Mission, Los Angeles; the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane; the Power Plant, Toronto; Modern Art, Oxford and Camden Arts Centre, London. It has been included in significant group exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC. The recipient of a Herb Alpert Award, a Creative Capital Grant and a USA Artists Award, Tribes work is in the public collections of MoMA, the Whitney, the Hammer and the Generali Foundation among others.
