Haunted: Contemporary Photography/Video/Performance
On the occasion of Haunted: Contemporary Photography/Video/Performance, artists create live events in the Guggenheim Rotunda.
Saturday, July 24, 3–7:45 pm
Sharon Hayes (b. 1970, Baltimore) uses video, installation, and performance to delve into the politics of language, desire, and protest, as manifest in both personal and public realms. Through a practice of “respeaking,” her work highlights uncanny instances of resonance between recorded historical texts and our present political moment. As part of Haunted, Hayes will stage a unique sonic event on the Guggenheim’s rotunda floor in which she will act as a DJ, spinning vintage spoken-word records that refer to moments from throughout the history of the twentieth century.
Free with museum admission.
Thursday, July 29, 7 pm and 8 pm
The performance work of Tris Vonna-Michell (b. 1982, Rochford, England) unleashes a barrage of words and images that mine the boundaries of personal memory and narrative fiction. His live, uninterrupted soliloquies, accompanied by 35mm slide projections from his personal archive, often take the form of erratic travelogues that rapidly plunge into alliteration and free association, intertwining history and autobiography. For Haunted, Vonna-Michell will perform recent work in an intimate setting just off the museum’s spiraling ramps.
