Brendan Fernandes, Nicolás Dumit Estévez, and Faculty Saya Woolfalk in conversation with Sara Reisman

Friday, September 11, 2015 from 6-8:00pm

Venue: The 8th Floor

17 West 17th Street, 8th Floor
New York, NY 10011



On September 11, 2015, The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation will host a conversation at The 8th Floor between Brendan Fernandes, Nicolás Dumit Estévez, and Saya Woolfalk that will explore how voice, gesture, and choreography figure into each artist’s practices. Working across diverse media including video, collage, sculpture, and photography, each artist addresses gesture as a preconditioned cultural construct to be transcended. Fernandes and Estévez both demonstrate the nuance of voice and pronunciation as signifiers of class and cultural identity. In Woolfalk’s ChimaTEK series, she has created a parallel culture in which ordinary limits imposed by racism, sexism, and ethnocentrism no longer apply.
