Watchlist Artist: Jacolby Satterwhite

On August 17, Jacolby Satterwhite will begin work on Grey Lines, a new chapter of his series, The Matriarch’s Rhapsody, as part of Recess’s signature program, Session. Session invites artists to use Recess’ public space as studio, exhibition venue, and grounds for experimentation.

Over the course of his Session, Satterwhite will create a 3D animated video using drawing, CG animation, and improvised and mediated performance. A continuation of The Matriarch’s Rhapsody, the series will continue to employ dance, performance, drawing, video and photos from public and private archives, combining these forms into new possibilities for generating narrative.
