Open Captioned – Mika Rottenberg in Conversation with Margot Norton

Join us for a special conversation between artist Mika Rottenberg and New Museum Curator Margot Norton on the occasion of Rottenberg’s exhibition “Easypieces.” In her first solo museum show in New York, Rottenberg explores networks of labor and commodity circulation through video and sculptural installations that mine exaggerated connections between bodily functions and machines of assembly and distribution. In this conversation, Rottenberg and Norton will discuss how the artist creates her semi-fictitious worlds populated by extreme bodies and the surreal origins of commodities like maraschino cherries, pearls, and tissue paper, touching on themes of distance, labor, transmission, and the relationships between materialism and matter.
