Working predominantly with moving image, Catherine Sullivan has described her practice as an “anthropology of theater.” The performers in her works are often coping with written texts, stylistic economies, re-enactments of historic performances, gestural and choreographic regimes, and conceptual orthodoxies. This evening program includes a screening of two films by Sullivan and a discussion moderated by Ryan Fontaine, codirector of the Minneapolis artist-run space Hair + Nails.
