Studio Lecture Series: Sondra Perry

Thursday, September 24, 2020 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Online via Zoom


The Department of Art and Art History's Studio Lecture Series presents Sondra Perry. In this online artist's talk, Perry will discuss her body of work, including videos, performances, and installations, that foreground digital tools as a way to critically reflect on new technologies of representation and remobilize their potential. Her works examine how images are produced in order to reveal the way photographic representations are captured and re-circulated.

Sondra Perry was born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, raised in New Jersey and North Texas, and has lived and worked in Newark, New Jersey, since 2019. She received her MFA from Columbia University, New York, and her BFA from Alfred University, Alfred, New York, in 2015 and 2012, respectively. Solo exhibitions include Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, Cleveland, USA; Luma Westbau, Zürich, Switzerland; Institute of Contemporary Art Miami, USA; Disjecta, Portland, USA; Serpentine Sackler Gallery, London, UK; Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, USA; Squeaky Wheel, Buffalo, USA; The Kitchen, New York, USA; and Institute for New Connotative Action, Seattle, USA. Perry has participated in residencies at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts (2015–16), RECESS (2015), Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2013), Ox-bow (2012), Vermont Studio Center (2011), and the Experimental Television Center (2011).
