I Remember Not Remembering

I Remember Not Remembering

Art Show
This exhibit presents 12 internationally renowned artists who use personal home movies, photo albums and film footage as raw material for artworks. Yto Barrada and collaborative pair Adriana Trujillo and José Inerzia interweave their family histories with the political and social transitions in 1960's postcolonial Morocco and 1970's Mexico. Filmmaker Kahlil Joseph merges snapshots and family videos with contemporary scenes of Compton to create a portrait of Los Angeles 20 years after the 1992 race riots. Larry Sultan's grid of 44 home-movie stills draws a rough outline of the artist's 1960s suburban California upbringing. The films of Matthew Buckingham and Hollis Frampton question whether truth and history are irreconcilable ideas. Christian Boltanski, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Christian Widmer, and Hannah Wilke dwell upon mortality and intimacy.
