Adrienne Edwards was named Engell Speyer Family Curator and Curator of Performance at the Whitney Museum in 2018. Previously, she served as curator of Performa since 2010 and as Curator at Large for the Walker Art Center since 2016. Edwards is co-curator of the 2021 Whitney Biennial with David Breslin. At the Whitney, she curated Jason Moran, the artist’s first museum show. She originated the exhibition at the Walker in 2018; it previously traveled to the ICA Boston and the Wexner Center for the Arts. The exhibition features a series of performances, Jazz on a HighFloor in the Afternoon, curated by Edwards and Moran. She organized the event commencing the construction of David Hammons’s Day’s End, featuring a commission by composer Henry Thread gill and a “water” tango on the Hudson River by the Fire Department of the City of New York’s Marine Company 9. Edwards also organized Moved by the Motion: Sudden Rise, a series of performances based on a text co-written by Wu Tsang, boychild, and Fred Moten, which presented a collage of words, film, movements, and sounds. For Performa, Edwards realized new boundary-defying commissions, as well as pathfinding conferences and film programs with a wide range of over forty international artists. While at the Walker, she co-led the institution-wide Mellon Foundation Interdisciplinary Initiative, an effort to expand ways of commissioning, studying, collecting, documenting, and conserving cross-disciplinary works. Edwards’s curatorial projects have included the critically acclaimed exhibition and catalogue Blackness in Abstraction, hosted by Pace Gallery in 2016. She also organized Frieze’s Artist Award and Live program in New York in 2018. 

Edwards taught art history and visual studies at New York University and The New School, and she is a contributor to the National Gallery of Art’s Center for the Advanced Study in Visual Art’s forthcoming publication Black Modernisms.

Parking is available at the cultural center, but limited. We encourage you to use a ride share service.

Performance: Human Computers

Performance: Human Computers

Durational performance by Jeff Thompson

Location:

Locust Projects
3852 North Miami Avenue
Miami, FL 33127

Join Locust Projects for a durational performance of Jeff Thompson: Human Computers and explore the early history of computing, office culture, automation of labor, and the layers of abstraction and standardization found in technological systems. Over the course of six hours, a group of thirteen performers will decode a single digital image entirely by hand using only pencils and paper worksheets. The results of this labor will be installed in the space for the duration of the exhibition, serving as documentation of the computations and providing context to the "office" existing in the gallery space.
