|Modern Mondays: An Evening with Kerry Tribe
Monday, May 13, 7:00 p.m.
Kerry Tribe (American, b. 1973) uses the formal mechanics of the moving image to explore the instability of recall and the subjective nature of perception. This evening culminates in a live performance of Tribe’s Critical Mass, based on the 1971 Hollis Frampton film of the same name. Tribe’s piece reenacts Frampton’s film, cut-by-cut, with two live actors. This is the New York premiere of a new iteration, with actors Emelie O’Hara and Nick Huff..
