Jemison in attendance.
Tuesday, October 17, 6:00 p.m. | Steffani Jemison (MFA 2009) lives and works in New York. She attends to the seam between conceptual precepts and embodied knowledge. Her multidisciplinary approach spans time-based, sculptural, and discursive mediums, informed by deep research into movement practices, literature, ethnomusicology, and the history of cinema. A 2020 recipient of a Creative Capital Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship, among other honors, her recent work examines the liberatory potential of opacity and quiet. Jemison in attendance.
Lecture Series: Our fall Lecture Series celebrates 30 years of essential contributions to moving-image culture that alums from the Department of Film, Video, New Media, and Animation (FVNMA) at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) have produced. The series traces a through-line from late 20th century media practices to current modes of production, giving particular emphasis to the ways independent moving image makers have both changed the conventions of filmmaking and adapted to the digital turn of the 21st century. Lecturer: Daniel Eisenberg. View full series.
