Curator's Tour with Elizabeth Chodos of Jacolby Satterwhite: Spirits Roaming on the Earth
This in-person tour starts on the 1st floor. Masks are required. Free and open to all.
Join us for a special Curator's Tour with Elizabeth Chodos, Spirits Roaming on the Earth Curator and Miller ICA Director. Explore the first major monographic survey of Jacolby Satterwhite’s work that traces ten years of the artist’s panoramic oeuvre.
Satterwhite incorporates a broad set of real and fantastical references in his work—drawing from sources that include modernism, mythology, video gaming, queer theory, and Black culture—that inform his 3D animated videos, sculptures, electronic dance tracks, and performances. His wide-ranging practice evokes an essential moral lesson on the healing properties of human creativity as Satterwhite transforms existential uncertainty into a generative engine of resilience, reinvention, and celebration. This ability is something he shares with his late mother and muse, Patricia Satterwhite, who leveraged her own irrepressible creative energy to transform hardship into new worlds of possibility.
