Video Title:
Lee Mingwei and Birita Poulsen with Leslie Ureña
Description:
Portrait Gallery curator Leslie Ureña hosts a conversation with artist Lee Mingwei and vocalist Birita Poulsen about the transnational aspect of Lee's work and the impact of the pandemic on performance art. Lee Mingwei’s Sonic Blossom (2013–present) was presented as part of the Portrait Gallery’s IDENTIFY performance art series in 2018. Birita Poulsen performs Invitation for Dawn (2020), a sister project of Sonic Blossom developed by Lee that made it possible for one-to-one encounters between participants and performers online via Zoom. This program is part of the Greenberg Steinhauser Forum in American Portraiture Conversation Series, sponsored by Dan Greenberg and Susan Steinhauser and hosted by PORTAL, the Portrait Gallery’s Scholarly Center.
