William Greaves: Psychodrama, Interruption, and Circulation

FriFeb  212020 /  1:00 pm

The Program in Visual Arts presents a day-long symposium centered on the work of William Greaves, a key figure in American filmmaking. Despite his historical and contemporary significance, under-representation has meant that few of his films are restored and available. This symposium shares Greaves' work with a new generation and gives access to some of his films that have rarely been screened. The events, organized by artists Fia Backström and Martine Syms, include a keynote address, panel discussion with contemporary artists and thinkers, the premiere of Greaves’s newly restored 1972 film: Nationtime—Gary, and an exhibition including works by Greaves and internationally renowned artists Martine Syms and Sondra Perry, both of whom are working in the vein of his legacy.
