Media installation: May 9 – May 16

Opening: May 9, 7-9pm

  • VSW Project Space Resident Sarah Friedland is a filmmaker and choreographer working at the intersection of moving images and moving bodies. For this 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 in the VSW microcinema. This engaging 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 project 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.

    May 9 Opening: suggested $10 [tickets]

    *rescheduled from Fall 2023

    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.
