Join Experiment Now, an in conversation with Patrick Staff, an artist living and working in Los Angeles, USA and London. Patrick's work combines video installation, performance, and publishing, to explore the ways in which history, technology, capitalism, and the law have transformed the social constitution of our bodies today, with a particular focus on gender, debility, and biopolitics.
Patrick will be in conversation with MFA course directors Gavin Butt and Corin Sworn to discuss their work and the limits and possibilities of artistic experiment within it and within the contemporary world.
Staff’s work has been exhibited, screened, and performed internationally, including at the Serpentine Galleries, London (2019); Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2019); and MOCA, Los Angeles (2017) amongst others. Their work is held in public and private collections internationally including MOMA, New York; MOCA, Los Angeles; and the Tate Collection, UK.
