Mitchell Kriegman: Chasing Bubbles in Video Art, Performance and Other Media
Date: Thursday, November 19, 2020
Time: 12–1 p.m. PST
Free Online Lecture
Presented by Art, Design & Architecture Museum, UC Santa Barbara

In this lecture, artist, writer and producer Mitchell Kriegman will discuss how writers, choreographers, painters, composers and other creatives assert “authorship” and what it means to be an artist and the creative endeavor in the broad all-encompassing paradigm shift that has affected all aspects of today’s social and political climate. As part of the second generation of video artists, Kriegman shares with his contemporaries Bill Viola and Martha Rosler an approach in which the performative body offers witty and, oftentimes, unnerving insight into the world.

Mitchell Kriegman is winner of three Emmy Awards, the Director’s Guild Award, an American Film Institute Fellowship, and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. He is author of Being Audrey Hepburn and Things I Can’t Explain, a sequel to his acclaimed series for Nickelodeon, Clarissa Explains It All. His “Telephone Stories” audio work is housed in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art. Earlier this year, the artist donated his papers to the UC Santa Barbara Library, and his archive of video and performance art to the Art, Design & Architecture Museum.

This lecture is organized by the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UC Santa Barbara, and co-sponsored by the UC Santa Barbara Library.
