Shape Shifters

A gallery talk with Stuart Comer With Stuart Comer 2:00 p.m. Whitney Museum of American Art Free with museum admission

Stuart Comer, a cocurator of the 2014 Whitney Biennial, has worked with Triple Canopy throughout the development of Pointing Machines, the magazine’s contribution to the Biennial. He speaks both about how publication figures in the exhibition and his own interest in “work whose hybridity is marked not only by the incorporation of multiple forms and media but processes in which these forms translate and morph into one another,” as he writes in “Shape-shifting,” his introductory essay in the Biennial exhibition catalogue.

  • Stuart Comer is Chief Curator of Media and Performance Art at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Previously he was Curator: Film at Tate Modern, London where he oversaw film and video work for the Tate Collection and Displays, was cocurator for the opening season of The Tanks at Tate Modern, and organized an extensive program of screenings, performances, and events.
