Streamed live on Oct 7, 2016
Video & Sound, Intermedia, and the MFA in Visual Studies programs are excited to present a lecture from Gia Hamilton, Director of the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans, LA on Friday, October 7 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the Mediatheque at PNCA. This lecture is free and open to the public.
Hamilton’s talk will focus on the intersectionality of her work.
In “Gris Gris Lab: Magic making in communities,” Hamilton examines community work through the lens of art, food, healing and education in her incubator space Gris Gris Lab. Hamilton looks at the genealogy of her work as a practitioner healing a body- each space, project and community are carefully listened to, cared for, and responded to using a variety of tools, in this instance the curator embodies the role of caregiver in the most holistic sense and explores safe space, intimacy in public spaces, and tool kits for sustainability.
