Calendar: Screening: Exquisite Corpse

Event Description

PAMM will screen Exquisite Corpse, a 51-minute installation and single-channel film that follows the 51-mile Los Angeles River from its origins in the San Fernando Valley northeast of the city to its terminus at the Pacific Ocean. Using a detailed map as a script, Tribe's camera captures the river's varied landscapes, neighborhoods, inhabitants, and communities through a string of meditative encounters that collectively describe the site, and the city, at this juncture in its history. Tribe's film is shown as part of Faena Art's presentation of highlights from the Biennale of Moving Images, on view at Faena Art April 13-30, 2017.

Faena Art presents highlights from the Biennale of Moving Images, a co-production with the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève. Under the artistic direction of Andrea Bellini in collaboration with Cecilia Alemani, Caroline Bourgeois and Elvira Dyangani Ose, the Biennale of Moving Images is a one-of-a-kind hybrid event bringing together visual artists, film directors and performers. This marks the 15th edition of the Biennale of Moving Images and the first time that it will be presented in the United States. 

Kerry Tribe (b. 1973, Boston, USA) lives and works in Los Angeles, USA. Tribe's rigorously-crafted, research-based projects use the structure, language, and materials of the moving image to explore topics ranging from butter y wings to space travel. Much of her work explores consciousness, perception and the critical potential of representational technologies.

Tribe's work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at The Power Plant in Toronto, Modern Art, Oxford, Camden Arts Centre in London and Arnolfini in Bristol. It has been included in recent significant exhibitions at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC. The recipient of a Creative Capital grant and a USA Artists Award, her work is in the public collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, The Hammer Museum, The Orange County Museum of Art and The Generali Foundation among others. She was a fellow at the American Academy in Berlin in 2005-2006, received her MFA from UCLA in 2002, and was a Whitney Independent Study Program Fellow in 1997-98. Upcoming projects include a solo show at Parque Galería, Mexico City, a group show at REDCAT, Los Angeles, and solo show at SFMoMA, San Francisco. Tribe is represented by 1301PE in Los Angeles, where she currently lives and works.
