Promoting and strengthening the artistic and cultural development of Orange County, North Carolina
LEVEL’s next artist-in-residence, Caroline Kern, presents a free artist talk on the rooftop at Attic 506!
Caroline is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working most recently in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania after over a decade in Brooklyn, New York. Her work currently revolves around Risograph printing, illustration, experimental video, and machine tufting. She is the sole proprietress of Pegacorn Press, a feminist, queer, “total-art-freaker,” publishing adventure founded in 2011 after self publishing since 1996. She has collaborated with countless artists to produce publications using Risograph stencil duplicators, as well as other printed ephemera.
Caroline will speak about her experiences as a DIY artist as well as her work at LEVEL towards a new mixed genre book about living with mild traumatic brain injury, post concussion syndrome, and her experiences with Long COVID. Drawing from her extensive career in printed ephemera, Caroline is working to combine narrative writing, illustration, and comic art to document her health journey and help viewers become better allies to those afflicted with health setbacks. She will also be screening selections from her video work.
This event is made possible by a grant from the Orange County Arts Commission.
