  • Thu, Mar 7th 6:00pm

Featuring works by Chick Strand, Tracey Moffatt, Yael Bartana, and Jumana Manna, this program explores the subtleties of power relations and gender dynamics in observational film and media art. The artists turn their cameras on men, addressing and reversing conventional hierarchies, while also placing various manifestations of masculinity under experimental, quasi- anthropological study. In an introduction and post-screening discussion, curator Rachael Rakes will discuss these works in light of contemporary alternative ethnographies and consider masculinity as a construct in nonfiction artmaking. Multiple formats. (Rachael Rakes)

Curator Rachael Rakes is scheduled to appear for audience discussion.
