Modern Reading

6 to 8 pm

Amber Bemak and Nadia Granados

TICKETS

By establishing a direct contrast between images of violence and media, Granados and Bemak propose a feminist intervention that dislocates the neoliberal rhetoric of the found imagery, repositioning the viewer and its relationship with the female body. Almudena Escobar López, Brooklyn Rail, July–August 2017

Pick of the Litter

Pick of the Litter follows a litter of puppies from the moment they’re born and begin their quest to become guide dogs for the blind. Cameras follow these pups through an intense two-year odyssey as they train to become dogs whose ultimate responsibility is to protect their blind partners from harm. Along the way, these remarkable animals rely on a community of dedicated individuals who train them to do amazing, life-changing things in the service of their human. The stakes are high and not every dog can make the cut. Only the best of the best. The pick of the litter.

The history of art has collapsed under the weight of the contemporary world. Artists and writers now must ask fundamental questions anew: “What defines art? What is the purpose of writing about it? And, facing our current tumultuous reality, why bother with art at all?Jarrett Earnest
