K. Yoland, an artist currently living between the U.S. and London, has come to be known for field-based, site-specific work that operates at the intersection of hybrid disciplines, incorporating the methodology and vocabulary of a documentary practice, fictional narratives, and political science. Embracing the absurd, the work often involves a variety of players enlisted in improvisation as well as choreography. Previous projects have included choreographing Danish dancers in a “war installation,” Olympic fencers on scaffolding, and working in 21 different day jobs in Paris in a durational look at community identity and alienation.

For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, Yoland is in conversation with Modern Curator of Education Terri Thornton as they consider the logistics, philosophical premise and form of such an ambitious and complex practice through two current projects: US/Mexico Border Project: Operation Tumbleweed, a multichannel video installation that chronicles the migration and movement of a kidnapped tumbleweed along the Mexican-American border; and Coastal Territory, for which Yoland works with the Department of Political Science and Department of Environmental Science at the University of West Florida.

Tuesdays Evenings at The Modern is a popular series of lectures and presentations by artists, architects, historians, and critics. Café Modern serves cocktails, salads, and appetizers on Tuesday nights during the lecture series.
