Janet Cardiff is perhaps best known for her signature audio walks, which she has made in London, Florence, San Francisco, St. Louis, and elsewhere. Her gallery installations--often made with George Bures Miller, Cardiff's husband and artistic collaborator--use the narrative and technical language of film noir to create lush, suspenseful sound and video works. In 2004, the Public Art Fund commissioned Her Long Black Hair, a 35-minute journey through Central Park that transformed an everyday stroll through the park into an absorbing psychological and physical experience. Viewers participated in Cardiff's narrative, retracing the footsteps of an enigmatic dark-haired woman through a sensory investigation of fact and fiction, interwoven with local history, opera, gospel music, and other atmospheric and cultural elements.
All Talks begin at 6:30pm and are held at The New School, 66 West 12th Street (between 5th & 6th Avenues).
