Urban Video Project (UVP) is pleased to present recent work by Keren Shavit and Eva Marie Rødbro at their Everson Museum architectural projection venue during the months of February and March.
Both Shavit and Rødbro have a practice that explodes the conventional relationship between documentarian and “subject,” exploring how fraught it can be with conflicting social emotions of recognition, rejection, misunderstanding, and alliance.
Rødbro and Shavit will be present for an indoor screening of their work and Q&A with the audience on Thursday, March 8 at 6:30pm in Watson Theater at Light Work on the SU campus. A reception will follow. This event is FREE & OPEN to the public.
