Jacolby Satterwhite: A Metta Prayer

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue

The Met’s Great Hall is the site of Jacolby Satterwhite’s multi-channel video installation and a series of performances that take place throughout the installation’s run. Based within a computer-generated landscape of an imagined New York City, Satterwhite’s video incorporates renderings of more than one hundred objects from the Museum’s permanent collection, three-dimensional animations, and live action sequences. The installation incorporates music, lighting, and a series of live performances by Satterwhite and his frequent collaborators to generate an immersive environment within The Met’s historic Great Hall. This project will be the second in the series of Great Hall Commissions.

Based in Brooklyn, Jacolby Satterwhite (b. Columbia, South Carolina, 1986) fuses a wide range of disciplines, such as performance, animation, music, painting, sculpture, and photography, to create kaleidoscopic media installations that reference art history, popular culture, queer theory, and Afrofuturist aesthetics. The result of his highly technical creative practice, involving a myriad of software platforms and new technologies, is a body of work that reflects the dynamism and technological richness of contemporary media culture.
