A.K. Burns will be the artist in residence through the Department of Education and Public Engagement’s Spring R&D Season: BODY. Using science fiction as a point of departure, Burns is currently developing a cycle of works and installations that draws on theater, Surrealism, philosophy, and ecological anxieties. The work is serial and organized around five elements: power (the sun), water, land, body, and the void. In her forthcoming commission for the New Museum, Burns will continue this series, staging an in-process, video-based installation that reworks the subject—and thereby subjugation—of the body. Find out more about the ‘A. K. Burns’ exhibition from the New Museum’s website.
