Join us on the evening of March 8 to hear artist Kate Browne discuss COCOON Steelton: The Migrations of Many. The talk is free with standard admission or museum membership. The event will begin with a short reception at 5:30pm, and the talk will begin at 6pm.
Since 2008 Kate Browne has worked on her international series COCOON that focuses on sites of forced and voluntary migrations and the epidemics that follow. As part of this series, she has created six performance installation works called Cocoons in Paris, Mexico City, Greenwood and Jackson, Mississippi, the South Bronx, and most recently Miskolc, Hungary. Currently, she is working on a Cocoon in the coal fields of West Virginia. Previously, she created plays in various New York City theaters. Her practice draws from a variety of disciplines: community organizing to encourage participation; oral history to record stories; documentary to create the soundtrack of interview excerpts; public sculpture; theater and civic event in the procession through the streets to the 10-by-26-foot Cocoon. Browne grew up in rural Pennsylvania, graduated from Hampshire College, and now lives in New York City.
