NEW DATE | Artist Talk: Katie Paterson


NEW DATE | Artist Talk: Katie Paterson

Thursday, July 15, 2021 @ 5:30 pm

Collaborating with scientists and researchers across the world, Katie Paterson creates projects that consider our place on Earth in the context of geological time and change. Her artworks make use of sophisticated technologies and specialist expertise to stage intimate, poetic, and philosophical engagements between people and their natural environment. Join the artist as she creates a unique sonic journey. We will move from calling a glacier in Iceland to listening to the split-second tone of a star dying in the distant universe to hearing the full recital of a musical score she transmitted to the moon. Paterson will also explore artworks that involve silence, and those that exist entirely in the imagination. We encourage you to wear headphones. Introduced by Katherine Bussard, Peter C. Bunnell Curator of Photography.
