Summer Institute I: Trackings and Trappings | Faculty members: Anju Singh, Justine A. Chambers, Natalie Purschwitz
July 8 @ 12:00 am - July 19 @ 12:00 am
Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art presents our 2019 Summer Institute Session I. The first session of the institute, Trackings and Trappings, will be led by faculty members: sound artist Anju Singh, dance artist Justine A. Chambers, and visual artist and designer Natalie Purschwitz.
The Summer Institute is an international post-graduate artist research program for professional artists and thinkers working in all disciplines and media. In the 2019 edition, Plug In ICA will host two iterations of the Summer Institute. The first session, led by Singh, Chambers, and Purschwitz, will run from July 8th to July 19th. Working under the heading Trackings and Trappings, the three leads will explore expanded notions of mapping, encouraging participants to investigate their own practice through the trappings of normalized systems of belief. Participants are invited to reorient their gaze, sensation and attention to gain understanding of how hard-wired ideological structures influence how we chart our trajectories through the experienced world.
