Catherine Sullivan’s work oscillates between the uncanny and camp, eliciting a profound critique of “acceptable” behavior in today’s media-saturated society. Her anxiety inducing films and live performances reveal the degree to which everyday gestures and emotional states are scripted and performed, probing the border between innate and learned behavior. Join Catherine Sullivan as she discusses her art work, dance and performance at Public Art Fund Talks, an ongoing series of discussions and presentations by some of today’s most influential artists, critics, and curators. This event was presented by the Public Art Fund in association with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School.
