Critical Dialogues: Gloria Sutton

Gloria Sutton is Assistant Professor of Contemporary Art History and New Media at Northeastern University in Boston. She received her PhD from the University of California Los Angeles and was a fellow at the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program and the Getty Research Institute. Gloria’s teaching and research focus on time-based media practices and a critical history of technological experiments within visual art. In particular, her scholarship suggests that Expanded Cinema practices did not hinge on developments in film, or more aptly, cinema, but on the introduction of network-based models of communication that allowed for the real-time transmission of images. These concerns are the subject of her current book, The Experience Machine: Stan VanDerBeek’s Movie-Drome and Expanded Cinema Practices (under contract to the MIT Press). Her scholarship in this area also appears in Mainframe Experimentalism: Early Digital Computing and the Experimental Arts (University of California Press, 2012) and Future Cinema: The Cinematic Imaginary after Film (MIT Press, 2003).

Critical Dialogues: Maryam Jafri

Maryam Jafri works primarily with the media of video, photography, text and performance. She takes a research-based approach to her work, that frequently results in extensive video and photo installations. In these works, Jafri combines specific temporal and cultural zones. In the process, she uses various narrative forms and consciously fictionalises documentary archive material. Her works move between film and theatre, fact and fiction, historical models and subjective adaptations. Among her recurring topics are the global conditions of production and strategies of application, which she investigates through real settings, objects or persons. Jafri’s artistic praxis sometimes resembles associative role-playing by which she recounts unusual scenarios at the juncture of business, history and geography.
