At this free, all-ages artist talk, Summer 2017 New Media Fellows Fernanda D'Agostino and Ariella Tai will discuss their work as media artists and what they’ll be creating during their residencies at Open Signal.

Ariella Tai will discuss the coded ways in which black viewers often must look through or outside of the narrative in order to achieve authentic, affirming or reactive readings.

They will explore the formal and aesthetic techniques employed in black film and performance to subvert the politically flawed narratives necessary to the financial and cultural longevity of the larger work.

Fernanda D’Agostino will discuss her recent works, “The Method of Loci” and “Generativity.” In 2012, Fernanda received a Ford Family Foundation Grant to fund her installation, “The Method of Loci,” a multi-chambered interactive video installation that she began developing during her residency at the American Academy of Rome. Later that year, during her residency at Can Serrat International Artists Center in Barcelona, she projected work in progress from “The Method of Loci” on the cliffs and ruins of Mont Serrat.

“The Method of Loci” was exhibited in its entirety at The Art Gym in Portland in Fall 2013. Individual room-sized installations from “The Method of Loci” have travelled to Santa Fe, New Mexico for Currents 2012 and 2014, and to SOMARTS, San Francisco, for the Soundwave Biennial. Work from “The Method of Loci” was also adapted for a digital dome exhibition in Santa Fe, June 2015.

Fernanda’s latest immersive installation, “Generativity,” was exhibited in Seattle at Suyama Space in 2016. In keeping with her practice of incorporating live events into her installations, “Generativity” integrated a performance by acclaimed Montreal-based choreographer Isabelle Choiniere.
