About the Event

Artist Autumn Knight invites viewers into her studio to learn more about her practice in this virtual experience moderated by MCA Associate Curator Tara Aisha Willis. Knight is a New York City-based artist who uses performance, installation, video, and text to construct scenarios that probe the relationships at play between people, often using irrationality, humor, discomfort, and uncertainty to make meaning out of our contemporary culture.
