The Institute of Contemporary Art and the Stuart Weitzman School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania are pleased to present an artist lecture and conversation with Na Mira on the entanglements of culture, family history, and the diaspora through the use of installation art.
This free public lecture is part of a series that gathers distinguished artists, writers, and designers whose work engages with the social and cultural themes of our time.
Na Mira’s autobody rites tend to entanglements at the edge of perception. Recent exhibitions, screenings, and performances include Whitney Museum of American Art; The Kitchen; Participant Inc.; Seoul Museum of Art; Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul; Midway Contemporary Art; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. She graduated from University of California, Los Angeles and School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and teaches about time at University of California, Riverside. Mira has received awards from Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Foundation for Contemporary Art, and Rema Hort Mann Foundation. Wendy’s Subway will publish the first collection of her writing this Fall. Mira grew up between the U.S. and East Asia and lives in Los Angeles.
Captioning will be available for this program via Zoom.
