TEDxCLE 2015 Talk
Kasumi, a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow, is a genuine polymath recognized worldwide for her accomplishments as a filmmaker, visual artist, musician, writer and performer. Running throughout her work is an intellect highly attuned to the elemental symbols and gestures that constitute our memories, perceptions, and interpretations of a universe in which we find ourselves otherwise without guides.
Her work is in collections and has been screened worldwide: from Lincoln Center with The New York Philharmonic to performances with Grandmaster Flash and DJ Spooky. BREAKDOWN, the 2010 Vimeo Remix Award winner, premiered at Carnegie Hall with the American Composers Orchestra. She has created new works for the Cleveland Museum of Art, EMPAC (Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center), Instituto Superior de Arte del Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires, Württembergischen Kunstverein, Stuttgart; and her work also was featured at Art Miami, Art Palm Beach, unpainted Media Art Fair, Munich, Museum of Contemporary Art, Krakow, Contemporary Museum Wroclaw, Itau Cultural Center, Sao Paulo, The Butler Institute of American Art, The Museum of Fine Art, Houston, Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro, San Diego Museum of Art, Chroma Festival de Arte Audiovisual, Mexico, and many others. A selection of her Perpetual Series was installed in the historic grand opening of DC (Donau City) Tower 1 in Vienna’s Donaucity, Austria, and her work completed a tour of the major museums and art institutions of Poland. Selections of her work are currently broadcast on France’s La Télédiversité #Numero23.
Shockwaves, her 80-minute looping media installation funded by her John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship is currently on a world tour of museums and theaters.
