Postponed until Spring 2024

We regret to announce that the multimedia installation by Sarah Friedland will be postponed from its original November 16 date. Rescheduling details will be announced soon.

  • Sarah Friedland is a filmmaker and choreographer working at the intersection of moving images and moving bodies. For this interactive installation in the VSW Salon, Friedland has selected films and videos from the VSW archives that resonate with a selection of her own videos, and created a multimedia installation that will launch with a screening/performance in the VSW microcinema. This engaging multimedia installation focuses on the movements found in social guidance films and how they stage choreographies that attempt to mold, train, and make-up the social body. Friedland’s Movement Exercises Trilogy will be in conversation with works from the VSW archive which perform exercises, drills, and instructions for moving bodies at home, at work, and at school.

    The VSW Salon is programmed by Tara Merenda Nelson,

    The VSW Salon is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts and by the ArtWorks program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
