Visiting Artist / Chris Kallmyer
This March, Los Angeles-based sound artist and performer Chris Kallmyer visited the MFA studios. Kallmyer’s work “explores a participatory approach to making music through touch, taste, and process using everyday objects that point to who we are and where we live. His work is best characterized by its relationship to site and architecture, inviting the listener to experience sound in situ.”
Kallmyer was the first Performance Fellow at the newly reopened San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 2016.Prior to that, Kallmyer was an Artist Fellow at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St Louis. “Kallmyer’s work has garnered commissions from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Walker Art Center, Hammer Museum, Pulitzer Arts Foundation, The Getty Center, Berkeley Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, The Biennial of the Americas, Chicago Cultural Center, Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the City of Los Angeles.”
MFA students Heather Peebles ’17, Jesse Rose Lentz ’17, Mike Moen ’18, and Joel Terry ’17, welcomed Kallmyer into their studios for engaging conversations.
Thanks for visiting, Chris!
