In conjunction with the opening of Mire Lee’s exhibition “Black Sun”—the artist’s first museum exhibition in the United States—Lee will join exhibition co-curator Gary Carrion-Murayari for a discussion of her artistic practice and new site-specific installation. Hear Lee discuss her many references, from psychoanalysis to horror, pornography, and cybernetics, and how she uses materials to evoke both bodies and machines.
