Sara Black presents and discusses both her individual work and that of her collaborative project, Material Exchange. Black’s performances, sculpture, installation, and col- laborative works evolve around an interest in how materials move through the world and the shifting designation of values in American culture. Black received her MFA from The University of Chicago. She has given talks and presented workshops at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Harvard University, SAIC, DePaul University, Columbia College, and more. Her work has been exhibited nationally in a variety of spaces including Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, The Smart Museum of Art, Gallery 400, Hyde Park Art Center, ThreewallsSOLO; Portland’s Museum of Contemporary Craft; New York’s Park Avenue Armory, and Eyebeam; Boston’s Tuft University Gallery; and Minneapolis’ Soap Factory.
