My first solo show “Some Type Of Way” opens October 30th at The Institute for New Connotative Action (INCA) in Seattle and runs until November 19th.
I’ll be performing a piece called “PEG” between 8:00 and 9:30 PM on Friday, October 30th.
INCA is proud to announce Sondra Perry’s first solo exhibition. The show consists of two pieces: A video from 2015 titled “Lineage for a Multiple-Monitor Workstation: Number One” and a piece from 2010 titled “Red Summer”.
“Lineage for a Multiple-Monitor Workstation: Number One” is a 26 minute double-projection video. In this work Perry combines family documentary with staged fictional performance, the personal and the political, the intimate and the critical, family traditions and the history of a country.
“Red Summer” is a series of photographs that take their name from the race riots of 1919. The photo series captures the artist’s grandparents after she ignited smoke bombs in their backyard: the artist grandparents used the photography session to reflect on their adolescence, growing up, and summertime in the segregated south. These photographs are both documents and staged constructions that serve as vehicles to connect the struggles of the past with those of the present.
Sondra Perry will also do a performance on Friday 30 October at 8:00pm at INCA.
Sondra Perry was born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, and is currently based in Houston, Texas. She holds an MFA from Columbia University (2015) and a BFA from Alfred University (2012). Perry makes performance, video installations, and works for the internet and has participated in residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Vermont Studio Center, Ox-bow, and the Experimental Television Center. Perry is currently an artist in residence at the CORE at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Her work is currently in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) PS1’s “Greater New York 2015” exhibition.
