The Department of Art Public Talks Programme Autumn 2016 welcomes artist and writer Hannah Black.
Hannah Black is an artist and writer whose work addresses race, gender, class, pop culture, and capital, among other things. Working with writing, video, performance and installation, as she will introduce in her lecture “I try not to make flat distinctions between these forms, but they all have different institutional contexts, different ways of getting paid and getting by. I will try to talk about how they relate or don't relate, the spectre or reality of the Art Career, some thoughts about London and what it was like to study there, the role of anger/resentment, the importance of some kind of contact with pain, "having something at stake", money, shame, fan mail, very minor celebrity, the embarrassing fantasy and the equally embarrassing reality of institutional desires for diversity, some other things, perhaps none of these.”
Hannah completed her MFA at Goldsmiths in 2013 and was a studio participant on the Whitney International Study Programme in New York from 2013 to 2014. Her work in video and installation has been exhibited at a number of museums and galleries including the New Museum and Interstate Projects (NY), Arcadia Missa, DRAF and Legion TV (London) and Chateau Shatto (LA), and readings/performances have taken place at many venues including the Whitechapel, the Showroom and Cafe Oto (London), Flutgraben and Societe (Berlin) and Cage, the New Museum and Lisa Cooley (New York). As part of a performance project with the musician Bonaventure, she has played at the ICA, the Berlin Biennale, and most recently at Bloc in Hackney Wick. Her writing has been published in The New Inquiry, Artforum, Texte zur Kunst and Frieze (DE), among other magazines, and in her book Dark Pool Party (Dominica/Arcadia Missa).
