1301PE is pleased to announce the opening of Kerry Tribe's exhibition, New Work, at SFMOMA. The exhibition premieres an SFMOMA commission by the Los Angeles–based artist and filmmaker that offers insight into the work of Standardized Patients—professional actors who portray patients in a simulated clinical environment as part of medical students' training. The multi-channel video installation explores questions of empathy, communication, and performance, and was developed through Tribe's close collaboration with professional clinicians, communication experts, and Standardized Patients at Stanford University and the University of Southern California. In this, Tribe's first solo exhibition at a major U.S. museum, the artist builds upon her history of engaging individuals from the acting and medical communities and exploring the willing suspension of disbelief.
