Silvia Kolbowski: NW Film Center

The politics of institutions penetrate daily life during times of crisis. What engaged—albeit antagonistic—positions can artists take in relation to the field of art, and to broader social relations? Silvia Kolbowski (b. 1953, Buenos Aires) will be in discussion with New York–based curator Kari Rittenbach about cultural collusion, personal implication in the political, psyche-specificity, and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818). Excerpts will be screened from Kolbowski’s two-channel installation Proximity to Power: American Style (2003/4), followed by the world premiere of That Monster: An Allegory (2018), a short looped video that plays once with music and once silent. With audience Q&A. This event will be co-presented with Yale Union, at Whitsell Auditorium.
