Interior(s): Film, Video & Installation Art

Nov 6, 2014



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


7:00 p.m.


Interior(s): Film, Video & Installation Art was a talk by John Hanhardt that offered a critical discussion on the history of the moving image in contemporary art.

In part inspired by Roland Barthes’s text How to Live Together: Novelistic Simulations of Some Everyday Spaces (2012), Hanhardt’s hour-long presentation explored how interior spaces are imagined, using examples ranging from work by John Ford to Isaac Julien. The talk concluded with a question and answer period. 

Video documentation of this event is available upon request.
