“Sondra Perry: Typhoon coming on” examines the artist’s innovative use of video, media, installation and performance to create powerful narratives that explore the intersection of black identity, digital culture and power.
Sondra Perry (b. 1986, Perth Amboy, New Jersey) is an interdisciplinary artist who works with video, computer-based media and performance to explore the digital abstraction of identity. Her videos and performances foreground the tools of digital production as a way to critically reflect on new technologies of representation and to remobilize their potential. Her work revolves around blackness and black American history and ways in which technology shapes identity, often with her own personal history as a point of departure.
‘Sondra Perry: Typhoon coming on’ was initiated by the Serpentine Galleries and curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Amira Gad. For its presentation at ICA Miami, the exhibition is curated by Alex Gartenfeld, Artistic Director, and Stephanie Seidel, Associate Curator, with Amanda Morgan, Curatorial Assistant.
“Sondra Perry: Typhoon coming on” is funded through the Knight Contemporary Art Fund at The Miami Foundation. Additional support is provided by Bridget Donahue. Special thanks to ICA Miami’s exhibition hotel sponsor InterContinental Miami.
