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. Grüne-Yanoff employs a variety of media to tell stories of hidden urges and secret desires. In exhibitions that interweave sound, video, photo-based images, sculpture, and words, Grüne-Yanoff immerses the viewer in a poetic as delicate as it is tenacious.Her work is held in a number of important public and private collections, including The Albright Knox Museum, NY, Liljevalchs Konsthalle, Stockholm, Sweden, and the Ginny Williams Foundation, Colorado.

Monica L. Miller is an Associate Professor of English at Barnard College. Professor Miller specializes in African-American and American literature and cultural studies. Her book, Slaves to Fashion: Black Dandyism and the Styling of Black Diasporic Identity, was published by Duke University Press in 2009. It received the 2010 William Sanders Scarborough Prize for the best book in African American literature and culture from the Modern Language Association.
