A person with medium-length hair in a cheetah-print coat and a yellow collar turns to look into a camera, a neon wall behind them backlighting the image.

Artist, writer and curator Eileen Isagon Skyers will share a talk covering her multifaceted practice and career in the arts. She will discuss our contemporary framework for viewing, making, and valuing art against a backdrop of rapidly shifting technology, and how that manifests in her own work and criticism about digital art and culture.

Presented in PNCA’s Shipley-Collins Mediatheque and Livestreaming on YouTube

In collaboration with the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art’s TBA Festival

An alumna of the MA in Critical Studies Program at PNCA, Eileen Isagon Skyers is an artist, writer, and curator based in New York City. Her work and research engages with identity, new media, and digital culture. She co-founded the New-York based gallery HOUSING, whose mission is to support artistic practices and aesthetic experiences that contour the limits of visibility, and advance the conditional inclusion of artists of color. Alongside her work as an independent curator, Skyers has worked with arts institutions and organizations including Rhizome, David Zwirner, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Skyers is currently Director of Communications at Foundation (foundation.app).

Free and open to the public.
