Whitney Museum of American Art curator Chrissie Iles reexamines the history of video art to foreground Black video artists’ approaches to performance, space, surveillance, sound, and power.
Iles is the Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Curator at the Whitney, where she focuses on contemporary art, film and video, and art of the 1960s and ’70s. In addition to her work at the Whitney, she teaches in the Fine Art Department at Columbia University and is a member of both the Graduate Committee at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, and the Integrated Media Arts Advisory Board at Hunter College. She was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Department of Art History at her alma mater, Bristol University, England.
