Fowler OutSpoken Conversation: Jacolby Satterwhite and Lanka Tattersall
A rising force in the contemporary art world, artist Jacolby Satterwhite utilizes a variety of new media to explore themes of memory, desire, and personal and public mythologies. His videos, digital prints, and performances include a variety of references from paintings by Caravaggio, to Harlem drag queen ball culture and personal family gatherings. From these points of departure, he weaves a time-based narrative out of the nonsensical intersections of text, rendered objects, and performance. In this evening conversation, Satterwhite dialogues with Lanka Tattersall, Assistant Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), about the inspirations that inform his artistic practice.
