Curious About Existence: Video Works by Duke & Battersby

October 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Emily Vey Duke & Cooper Battersby

Syracuse-based filmmakers Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby have been creative collaborators for over a decade. Their video works employ a unique variety of techniques that explore anthropomorphism, prophecy, spiritual dimensionality and time travel to ultimately expand upon the complex discourse around the human condition. This program of short video works will culminate in a discussion with the filmmakers.

Duke and Battersby’s work has shown at the Whitney Museum, Walker Center, Institute of Contemporary Art, the Musee d’Art Contemporain Montreal, The New York Film Festival, The Toronto International Film Festival and the International Film Festival of Rotterdam.


The VSW Film Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by the ArtWorks program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
