Stanya Kahn, George and Matilda Fowler Lecture
Stanya Kahn is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily in video with a practice that includes performance, writing, sound, drawing, painting and ceramics. Humor, pathos and the uncanny emerge as central modes in a hybrid media practice that seeks to re-work relationships between fiction and document, the real and the hyper-real, satire and sincerity, narrative time and the synchronic time of impulse.
Kahn is a 2012 Guggenheim Fellow in Film/Video. Recent exhibitions include Marlborough Contemporary, NY; Susanne Vielmetter, Los Angeles; Weiss Berlin; Cornerhouse, Manchester, UK; the New Museum, New York, NY; and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York. She has shown at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, CA; the2010 California Biennial; and Rodeo, London, UK recently. Her collaborative work with Harry Dodge has shown at Elizabeth Dee Gallery, New York; the 2008 Whitney Biennial; the Sundance Film Festival; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Museum of Modenr Art, New York; ZKM Karlsrühe; among others. She was a contributing writer, performer and costumer on the feature film By Hook or By Crook. Her writings and drawings are in multiple publications including Die Laughing (2nd Cannons Publications), It's Cool, I'm Good (Cornerhouse Publications), Abstract Video (University of California Press), among others.
