Year in Review – Programme info
aemi’s second Year in Review programme – featuring works by: Onyeka Igwe, Lynne Sachs with and for Barbara Hammer, Sky Hopinka, Timothy Smith, Glenn Belverio, Rhea Storr, Laure Prouvost – showcases some of the best international artist moving image works that have helped sustain us through a period of profound change. The films evolve thematically and Programme 2 suggests some pathways to a future defined by collective forms of participation.
Several of the films in this programme speak to the potential of spaces that connect people, considering also the roles of interlinking past and present communities within these spaces, and the future value and affect of culture developing within these environments. Music also continues to play a significant part in this programme, however the emphasis now is on highlighting togetherness through creativity and publicness, and through shared experiences of political resistance, intent and play.
