Session Description 
Recreational Meeting: Moving Image with Eduardo Williams 

Developed in collaboration with filmmaker Eduardo “Teddy” Williams, this walking session explores the relationship between movement, the camera, and our environment.   

Program Description 
Fridays, February 5–March 12, 2021, 3–4:15 pm, Dia Online 

Facilitated by artist and Dia educator Stephen Kwok in collaboration with a series of guest artists, these workshops invite participants to reimagine digital platforms and the social formats that they prescribe through experimental and experiential exercises. In practice, these sessions explore how distance may enable, rather than limit, engagement with our surroundings, ourselves, and each other.   

Stephen Kwok makes experimental events that incorporate sculpture, live performance, digital media, and text. He holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in business administration from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. He was an artist-in-residence at Delfina Foundation’s Performance as Process program in London. Kwok has exhibited at Seoul Museum of Art; Surplus Space, Wuhan; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Center for Performance Research, Brooklyn; Julius Caesar Gallery, Chicago; Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans; and Lawndale Art Center, Houston.
