FMCA Annual Meeting for General Membership

 

 

Featured in the DIA exhibition Watch Me Move, Swedish-born artist Nathalie Djurberg has honed a    distinctive style of stop-action animation, transforming it into a medium that reveals the vicissitudes of revenge, lust, submission, gluttony, and other primal emotions with an unblinking eye. She tells stories about the human condition mixed with dark humor and seriousness. Her creative partner, Hans Berg, composes musical scores that amplify the transgressive character of Djurberg's animations. 

 

The artists' collaborations have been featured widely in solo and group exhibitions around the world. Most notably, in 2009, they presented their installation The Experiment in Making Worlds at the 53rd Venice Biennale, for which Djurberg was awarded the prestigious Silver Lion for a Promising Young Artist and a retrospective exhibition The Parade organized by the Walker Art Center in 2011. They have had other solo exhibitions at Camden Arts Centre, London; Museum Boijmans Van Beunjngen, Rotterdam; Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohion; Natural History Museum, Basel; OMA Prada Transformer, Seoul (2009); Hammer Museum, Los Angles; Fondazione Prada, Milan; Kunsthalle Winterthur; and Switzerland; Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna. 

 

You must be 18 years of age or older to attend this event.
