Between the Skin and the Prop,  A conversation with Monica L. Miller
IFAC / International Fine Arts Consortium
March 4 – May 3, 2015

Joanne Grüne-Yanoff, Between the Skin and the Prop. The artist exchanges ideas with the scholar Monica L. Miller, who writes her a letter after seeing an exhibition of her work in Stockholm, Sweden. The point of inception is the artist’s video, "Fly!". An extended dialogue - encompassing video, sculpture, images and letters - unfolds between the two researchers, forming a vibrant exchange of new artworks and ideas. Touching upon race, place, oppression and liberation, the conversation becomes a meditation on what it is to be human. Stockholm based artist Joanne Grüne-Yanoff has been exhibiting extensively in the US and abroad since the 1990s.
