Talk With Me

The second With Me was Talk With Me.
Dana Turkovic, curated an exhibition at the Cecille R. Hunt Gallery on Webster campus that rotated digital video from the media archives.  The gallery space was made into a learning center where access to rarely viewed video was available to patrons.  I invited students to watch videos with me and discuss.

We watched videos by William Kentridge and Matthew Barney and had delightful conversations about the translation of drawing into video that is not expressly animation and the visual appeal of the absurd and vulgar.

We also swapped favorite film titles and discussed our favorite film makers who were not on exhibition.
