Kerry Tribe, still from Exquisite Corpse, 2016.

Kerry Tribe works primarily in film, video, and installation. Focusing on the mechanics of representation—particularly cinematic representation—its metaphoric potential and its engagement with reality, her art addresses processes of thought and their relationship to subjectivity, narrative, place and time. Employing image, text, sound, structure, and space, her work plays upon the internal workings and ingrained habits of the mind, its unavoidable quirks, flaws, and shifting fault-lines. Stimulating both reflexive experience and a reflection upon such experience, she prompts an unusual type of self-consciousness, a disorienting and discomforting awareness of the gaps between perception, cognition, and memory, the fluidity—and ultimate unreliability—of each.

Tribe’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at 356 Mission, Los Angeles; the Institute for Modern Art, Brisbane; The Power Plant, Toronto; Modern Art, Oxford; and Camden Arts Centre, London. She has received a Creative Capital Grant, a USA Artists Award, and was the 2017 recipient of the Herb Alpert Award in the Arts for Film/Video. Her films have been screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam; New York Film Festival; and BFI London Film Festival, among others. Her works are held in collections including the Museum of Modern Art; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach; and Generali Foundation, Vienna. Tribe received her MFA from UCLA in 2002, and was a Whitney Independent Study Program Fellow in 1997-98. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.

New Work: Kerry Tribe is on view at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art from October 7, 2017 to February 25, 2018.

The work of Awoiska van der Molen (b. 1972, Netherlands) develops from a desire to comprehend the core of the isolated world she photographs. In order to achieve the sense of solitude necessary to gain access to the stoic nature of the landscape, she spends long periods of time isolated in the natural environment. She takes time to experience the landscape and penetrates deep into the essence of the remote, hushed world created in her photographs. She immerses herself in the landscape, moves slowly, returns repeatedly and by doing so makes these unknown places her own. This gradual and solitary working process continues into the darkroom where her pictures are printed by hand—an intimate process—further imparting a unique stillness that emanates from her work.
