About the event
Recent oppositional movements such as Occupy and Black Lives Matter have demonstrated how acts of cultural-political resistance and commemoration are closely linked to questions of space and public access.
Iman Issa’s Proposal for an Iraq War Memorial, (2007) was made as a response to an exhibition call from the ICA London. Issa will screen and discuss her video alongside and in relationship to other relevant works of hers.
These screenings, discussions and the conference relate to recent oppositional movements such as Occupy and Black Lives Matter that have connected acts of cultural-political resistance and commemoration to questions of space and public access.
This screening is part of the programming for the upcoming Shift Conference on March 17, 2016.
Cosponsored by the PhD Program in Art History, and the James Gallery at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
