Kenneth Tam & Bruce Hainley
Kenneth Tam’s recent videos are the outgrowth of encounters between strangers, developed with participants the artist has met through online social forums. In these scenarios, barriers of intimacy become unhinged and vulnerabilities are shared through various activities that are performed in the presence of a camera, which acts as a conduit between an anonymous interior space and the outside world. Tam will be in conversation with the writer Bruce Hainley, alongside a screening of specially selected videos.
All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.
