Description from Art History Festival 2021:
"Join us to celebrate the forthcoming launch of the publication Felt Events (The MIT Press and Strange Attractor, 2021), which explores the multifaceted conceptual practice of the artist Ilana Halperin.
Halperin (b. 1973) is an artist who shares her birthday with an Icelandic volcano. Working through the aesthetics of geology since the late 1990s, her multifaceted, conceptual practice unearths the intimate poetics of rocks, minerals, and body stones. Halperin’s fieldwork has led her from erupting volcanoes in Hawaii to petrifying caves in France, and geothermal springs in Japan.
Felt Events surveys the last two decades of Halperin’s output (1999–2020), representing a mid-career moment of reflection. The event will include a performative reading by Ilana Halperin, accompanied by a panel discussion chaired by Catriona McAra, University of St Andrews with independent curator Naoko Mabon. There will be an opportunity for audiences to take part in a Q&A session.
This event is organised by the Scottish Society for Art History in association with the Museums of the University of St Andrews."
