Created for Muscle Memory, her current exhibition at the AGH, Michèle Pearson Clarke’s Quantum Choir is a four-channel video installation that reflects on the vulnerability of learning to sing as a way of exploring the legibility, precarity, and affinity of contemporary queer female masculinity.
Joining the artist for a conversation about her work will be Vanessa Kwan, artist, curator and Program Director at grunt gallery; Cait McKinney, Assistant Professor of Communication at Simon Fraser University, and Liss Platt, media artist and Professor of Multimedia at McMaster University. Together, they will consider the ideas and concepts explored in Clarke’s exhibition, while also contextualizing her work within a broader discussion on performance, identity, and queer collectivity.
