The Solomon Fellowship Committee is thrilled to announce acclaimed artist Sondra Perry (b. 1986, Perth Amboy, NJ) as the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies’ 2021 Solomon Fellow. Perry makes videos, performances, and installations that foreground digital tools as a way to critically reflect on new technologies of representation and remobilize their potential. Perry was the recipient of the 2018 Nam June Paik Award and her work is held in the collections of numerous museums including the Hammer Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, amongst others.
Perry will be in “remote residence” in AFVS for the month of March, visiting courses in Studio and Film/Video including a sustained pedagogical collaboration with Visiting Lecturer Tomashi Jackson. On Wednesday, March 10th, Perry and Solomon Fellow Undergraduate Liaison, Grey Johnson ‘22, will host a private gathering open only to undergraduate and graduate students on The Terrace at 8pm EST. A limited number of one-on-one meetings with Perry will be available to interested students who attend the event on The Terrace. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to express your interest in a one-on-one meeting with Perry.
