Department of Art Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Jenna Sutela

Thursday, November 5 at 10:00am

Virtual Event

Jenna Sutela: "Many-Headedness" 

Jenna Sutela will share some of her ongoing artistic research on biological and computational systems. Sutela's talk will focus on an understanding of oneself as interconnected with the wider environment. It proposes a profound shift in subjectivity—one beyond anthropocentrism and individualism. 

Jenna Sutela works with words, sounds, and other living media, such as Bacillus subtilis nattō bacteria and the “many-headed” slime mold Physarum polycephalum. Her audiovisual pieces, sculptures, and performances seek to identify and react to precarious social and material moments, often in relation to technology. Sutela's work has been presented at museums and art contexts internationally, including Guggenheim Bilbao, Moderna Museet, and Serpentine Galleries. She was a Visiting Artist at The MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) in 2019-20. 

Lectures are free and open to the public.

Lectures are live on Zoom- REGISTER HERE.

Lectures will also livestream on the UO Department of Art Facebook account.
