  • Artist Talk and Screening, 7 pm

    Featuring 35mm footage salvaged from a now demolished black civil rights theater in Brooklyn, New York, Go-Rilla Means War is an experimental short that merges fact and fiction. The film is a relic of gentrification, and highlights the complex intersections of development, cultural preservation and erasure in the form of an intricately spoken parable and celluloid frames weathered by decades of urban neglect. Presented by artist and filmmaker Crystal Z. Campbell, the screening will be followed by a gallery talk of the Go-Rilla Means War video installation in the VSW gallery.  Artist in attendance
