Shaina Anand and Ashok Sukumaran in Residence
July 16 – 28 2011
Shaina Anand and Ashok Sukumaran work individually and collectively with other artists, programmers, filmmakers, and theoreticians to investigate the implications of technology in the context of economic and material globalization. Anand and Sukumaran, together with Sanjay Bhangar founded CAMP in 2007 as a space “in which ideas and energies gather, and become interests and forms.” CAMP has also co-initiated PAD.MA, a deeply searchable online archive of annotated video material, primarily footage, and incomplete films. During their residency, Anand and Sukumaran will introduce their practices through a series of public programs and conduct research that will inform their contributions to the “The Generational,” the second New Museum Triennial, opening in February 2012.
