Artist Talk: Kerry Tribe
September 23, 2010
Kerry Tribe speaks on her work. Tribe's rigorously crafted, large-scale projects in film, video and installation form an ongoing investigation into memory, subjectivity and doubt. She regularly invites actors, crew members and technical specialists to participate in her work, producing ludic philosophical inquiries through structurally rigorous forms. Tribe's work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; the Generali Foundation, Vienna; Kunst Werke, Berlin; and SMAK, Gent. She was a fellow at the American Academy in Berlin in 2005-2006, received her MFA from UCLA in 2002, was a Whitney Independent Study Program Fellow in 1997-98 and received her BA in Art and Semiotics from Brown University in 1997. Tribe currently splits her time between Los Angeles and Berlin.
