"What is the state of our new atmosphere?" asks curator Efrem Zelony-Mindell as he approaches his latest curatorial project Are You Loathesome? The video series which screens from December 8th thru 11th at Brooklyn's Video Revival includes work from 15 artists addressing class, race, and gender with a variety of approaches that encourage dialogue, and "listening" over heavy handed diatribes.
"Now is a time to be outside, together, for each other," says Zelony-Mindell, "We are nothing more than shapes and sizes. Hurling labels won’t win—whispers fall. We are together; we will either be for one another or against. There are no real sides. That is only an illusion."
Artists include: Allana Clark, Judith Stenneken, Brooke Holloway, Patrice Helmar
Carly Mark, Alon Borten, Dana Davenport, Michael Stablein Jr., Benjy Russell, Daniel Johnson
Robert Hickerson, Joseph Maida, Patricia Voulgaris, Peter Clough, and Kate Gilmore.
Are You Loathsome is on view December 8th – 11th 2016 at Video Revival with an opening reception on December 9th. Screenings of all 15 video pieces start at 7PM. Open donations are appreciated. Tickets are $5.
