Charisse Pearlina Weston
Paul and Irene Hollister Fields of the Future Research Fellow, Bard Graduate Center

Join Charisse Pearlina Weston as she discusses her current research project which explores, on the one hand, how surveillance mechanisms employ socio-spatial proximity to manifest a constrictive form of intimacy and, on the other, how this intimacy enacts violence and reifies anti-blackness.  Weston will also discuss the ways in which the practice of research allows her to contend with this dynamic interplay of violence and intimacy.

Charisse Pearlina Weston (b.1988; Houston, TX) has exhibited in group shows at Contemporary Art Museum Houston and the Hessell Museum of Art at Bard College (forthcoming) and has had solo shows at Project Row Houses and the Queens Museum (forthcoming). Weston has received awards from the Artadia Fund, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Graham Foundation and fellowships from the Dedalus Foundation and the Museum of Art and Design (MAD). She is the recipient of MAD’s 2021 Burke Prize. She holds an MFA from the University of California-Irvine and participated in the Whitney Independent Study Program.
