A.K. Burns will participate in "The Hammer Mix: Decades," a screening and conversation about Barbara Hammer at MoMA, NYC, November 13th, at 7pm
Queer|Art and The Museum of Modern Art team up for their first co-presentation on Wednesday, November 13th at 7pm with “The Hammer Mix: Decades,” a special evening of screenings and conversation organized in honor of legendary artist and filmmaker Barbara Hammer (1939-2019), whose prolific creative career spanned more than six decades. The program includes a screening of short films made across those decades and will explore some of Hammer's many diverse creative interests, including love and intimacy, travel and human connection, and the art and politics of dying. N. Scott Johnson will perform a special live accompaniment to Hammer’s 2018 film “Evidentiary Bodies”. A post-screening conversation with film historian Sarah Keller, artist A.K. Burns, and 2018 Hammer Grant Winner Miatta Kawinzi, moderated by program curator Vanessa Haroutunian, will consider Hammer's influence on past, present, and future generations of artists.
