Ranu Mukherjee: A Completely Matter of Fact Acceptance of the Agency of Non-Human Beings of Many Kinds

Date/Time
Date(s) - December 03, 2019
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Ranu Mukherjee will present recent work and projects that represent shifting visions of landscape and ecology, migrations and diaspora, and female experience and feminisms as forces that are moving us into the future. She will discuss finding sources of power and sustenance through image making; by deconstructing and recomposing, infusing surfaces with elements of sensuality and time, and holding space for the somatic intelligence of bodies – human or otherwise. She will also touch on her collective practice as the avatar 0rphan Drift and their work If AI Were Cephalopod.
