Artist-to-Artist: Sandra Binion in discussion with Corey Postiglione

Join artist Sandra Binion and artist and writer Corey Postiglione in a discussion of Binion’s prolific career as it is represented in her retrospective exhibition Sandra Binion: Autobiography of Looking. Taking place in the exhibition itself, Postiglione and Binion will guide visitors through the rich collection of objects, documents, artworks, and media from Binion’s archive, unveiling Binion’s unique vision and creative process. Both artists have had long and active careers, and their informed and personal accounts of the cultural, historical, and social contexts that influenced the development of Binion’s work will provide a unique perspective on artmaking from the inside, as well as providing a meaningful assessment of Binion’s contributions to the history of performance and interdisciplinary artmaking.
