Terry Berlier, Kala Fellowship Talk

Terry Berlier is an interdiciplinary artist who creates sound sculpture and installations that compel the listener/viewer to become critically aware of environmental concerns on both a global and intimate scale. Her work is often kinetic and interactive and often focuses around everyday objects, ideas of nonplace/place and queer practice. Terry received the 2008 new Visions of California Awardthat provided a residency at the Exploratorium. Her work has been presented in numerous national and international exhibitions and is currently on view in Seeing Gertrude Steinat the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. Terry is currently a Professor of Sculpture at Stanford University.

Ranu Mukherjee creates hybrid works in video animation and drawing to depict abstract forms of nomadic living that are both historical and contemporary. Her works evoke a science fictional present by drawing on narratives and encounters of embodiment, excess, survival, ecology, the nomadic and the unknown.  Prior to moving to the Bay Area, Ranu lived in London, making work as part of the collaborative artist known as orphan drift. Her work has recently been presented internationally and in San Francisco at The Luggage Store, New Langton Arts ,The Lab and is currently on view at Noma’s Gallery new Videoh0le project. Ranu teaches video arts at California College of the Arts.

The talk is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
