Ericka Beckman at MIT List Visual Arts Center

  • MIT List Visual Arts Center, Bldg. E15 20 Ames St., Bartos Theatre, Cambridge MA, 02142 (map)

Ericka Beckman’s has forged a signature visual language in film, video, installation, and photography. Her moving image works are structured according to the logic of child’s play, games, folklore, or fairy tales, and populated by archetypical characters and toy-like props in bright, primary colors. Throughout her work, Beckman engages profound questions of gender, role-playing, competition, power, and control.

This talk is offered in conjunction with Ericka Beckman: Double Reverse a tightly focused survey show that focuses on four of Beckman's filmic installations.

This program is free and open to the general public but RSVPs are required.
