Fresh Talk: Joan Jonas

June 4th, 2012 · Comments

In Austin, Texas, Cathy Byrd talks with seminal video and performance artist Joan Jonas about how context affects each presentation of The Shape, The Scent, The Feel of Things, a project commissioned by Dia Beacon in 2004. Joan considers the evolution of her transmedia process since the 1960s and the inspiration she gets from working with jazz improvisor Jason Moran. Joan's collaborator in The Shape, the Scent, the Feel of Things (2005-2006) and Reading Dante (2008), Jason will be featured in his own Fresh Talk episode. Jason and Joan will perform together this September in Kassel, Germany, during documenta 13.
