Following the opening of This Longing Vessel: Studio Museum Artists in Residence 2019–20, join us for a special week of Studio LIVE programming featuring the 2019–20 Artist-in-Residence cohort. On Thursday, December 17 at 1:00 pm EST,  hear performance artist Elliot Reed engage in conversation with Legacy Russell, Associate Curator, Exhibitions on Instagram live

Elliot Reed (b. 1992, Milwaukee, WI) is an artist designing conflict systems for bodies in time. Utilizing scores, choreography, and improvisation, Reed creates event-specific narratives linking personal histories and current events. As viewers move through his work, the narrative arc moves through them, unfurling itself in actual time. Reed is the founder, director, and sole employee of Elliot Reed Laboratories, a production office located within the artist’s body. Established in 2014, Elliot Reed Laboratories holds a copyright with The Library of Congress and a Los Angeles County business license. In this live conversation, Reed and Russell explore Reed’s philosophy as tied to his performance and video practice. They will discuss the unique presentation of his work in This Longing Vessel as well as how the artist engages with intimacy in his practice. 

To watch the talk, visit the Studio Museum’s Instagram page at 1:00 pm EST.
