Performances proposed by Christian Alandete, With Shana Moulton / Clélia Barbut & Charlotte Hubert

Shana Moulton lives and works near Yosemite, California. Over the past 15 years she has been developing her ongoing video/performance series Whispering Pines, in which she plays the role of “Cynthia”, both a fictional figure and the artist’s alter ego. Moulton has had solo exhibitions or performances at MoMA, The New Museum, Performa 2009, The Kitchen, Electronic Arts Intermix, Art in General, SmackMellon, The Andy Warhol Museum, SFMOMA, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, The Hammer Museum, MOCA Cleveland, The Wexner Center for the Arts, The Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Palais De Tokyo in Paris, The Migros Museum in Zurich, Kunsthaus Glarus, Fondazione Morra Greco in Naples and the Times Museum in Guangzhou. Moulton’s work has been reviewed in the Village Voice, Artforum, The Brooklyn Rail, The New York Times, Artnet Magazine, Frieze Magazine, Art Review, Artpress, Flash Art and The Fresno Bee. She is a featured artist at Electronic Arts Intermix and Art21.

Clélia Barbut is a sociologist and art historian working as a research associate at CERLIS (Paris Descartes University) and at the Art History and Criticism research unit (Rennes 2 University). She also teaches at these universities. Her research revolves around artistic performances, their archives and historiographies, as well as feminist epistemologies.

Charlotte Hubert was born on March 27th 1984 at 7:55am in the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce clinic in Nantes. She lives in Paris and works everywhere on earth. She started making art because she kept losing at Monopoly. Charlotte Hubert tells stories, dances in Neapolitan nightclubs and observes Mount Fuji. In collaboration with sociologist and art historian Clélia Barbut, whom she met at the municipal pool, she created aquagymologie. She is a visual-arts teaching fellow at Paris 8 University, offering a course entitled “I Am to Art What a Sardine Is to Oil”. Charlotte Hubert invents fictions without bursting out laughing, and regularly exhibits her work in an organized way in France and abroad.
