POSTPONED: Black Utopia: Cauleen Smith In Dialogue with the VSW Collection
This event has been postponed. Check back for more details.
In Dialogue is a series in which we invite practicing filmmakers to show their work alongside films from the VSW Collection, creating a dialogue among works that resonates with and reflects upon the approach of the filmmaker. Drawing from structuralism, third world cinema, and science fiction, interdisciplinary artist Cauleen Smith creates objects and experiences that reflect upon the everyday possibilities of the imagination while offering a phenomenological experience for spectators and participants. This screening features a selection of films from the VSW collection chosen by Smith to accompany her own films, addressing notions of identity, ethics, empathy and Black feminism. Artist in attendance.
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.
