Artist Carrie Moyer joins writer Malvika Jolly for a conversation. We conclude with a poetry reading from Samita Sinha.
Artist known for her sumptuous paintings on canvas, Carrie Moyer is recognized as one of the most distinctive, powerful, and thoughtful painters of her generation. Moyer’s work explores and extends the legacy of American Abstraction while paying homage to many of its seminal female figures, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Helen Frankenthaler, and Elizabeth Murray. Moyer was featured in the 2017 Whitney Museum Biennial and is represented by DC Moore Gallery. Her exhibition at DC Moore Gallery titled Analog Time is on view through May 1, 2021.
A writer living between New York and Chicago, Malvika Jolly is the events assistant at the Brooklyn Rail and a regular contributor to the South Side Weekly, where she focuses on local culture and community history.
The Rail has a tradition of ending our conversations with a poem, and we’re fortunate to have Samita Sinha reading.
Artist and composer Samita Sinha creates multidisciplinary performance works that investigate origins of voice: the quantum entanglement of listening and sounding, how voice emerges from the body and consciousness, and how voice can be claimed and rescued from voicelessness. She synthesizes Indian vocal traditions (Hindustani classical and Bengali Baul folk) and embodied energetic practices to create a decolonized, bodily, multivalent language of vibration and transformation.
