Panel and Screening
Film and Video as a Social Art: Contemporary Moving Images and Social Practice
Caryn Coleman, independent curator and writer; Jenny Krasner, independent artist

A play off of Amos Vogel’s seminal avante-garde film anthology, Film as a Subversive Art (1974), this program explores the function of film and video in prescribing meaning as it positions this affective medium as an attempt to increase a collective understanding of the world. The panel and program will look at film and video works that inscribe a documentary approach (often co-mingling fact with fantasy) in the post-9/11 landscape. Artists include Josh Azzarella, My Barbarian, Karl Erickson, Alix Lambert, Stephanie Sinclair, and several others.
