A Conversation between Kate Mattingly, Jesse Hewit, and Sophia Wang on Abby Crain’s creature human creature human creature human.
This fall and winter I had an email conversation with Keith Hennessy about his new solo work, Bear/Skin. I had seen a study for it back in 2013, at SALTA’s PPP 10. We started this conversation after his in-progress showing in San Francisco, before the work’s premier at American Realness. We revisited the conversation after the piece was shown in full this January at the Joe Goode Annex in SF and in Oakland at the Omni. An edited transcript of our emails follows.
