Upcoming Visiting Artists
Shana Moulton: Whispering Pines
April 26 - 27, 2017
Internationally acclaimed artist Shana Moulton is the final visiting artist of our 2016-17 series. Her work combines video,
performance and sculpture - each medium plays a unique role in magical, surreal narratives. Moulton’s fictional world is
reflects contemporary life and presents an existential struggle between the isolating influence of cultural consumerism and
the spiritual call of nature. There is an eerie familiarity when viewing her work, it is both seductive and uncomfortable and
captures the romance and horror of being alive.
Shana Moulton will deliver two artist talks as well as a screening of her video work. The screening will feature a special
live video performance. This is an incredible opportunity to experience her work first hand and is not to be missed.
Shana Moulton lives and works near Yosemite, California. Over the past 15 years she has been developing her ongoing
video/performance series Whispering Pines, in which she plays the role of "Cynthia", both a fictional figure and the artist's
alter ego. Moulton has had solo exhibitions or performances at The New Museum in NYC, SFMOMA, MoMA P.S.1, Performa 2009,
The Kitchen, Electronic Arts Intermix, Art in General, The Andy Warhol Museum, The Palais De Tokyo in Paris, The Migros Museum
in Zurich and the Times Museum in Guangzhou. She is a featured artist at Electronic Arts Intermix and Art21.
