Queer Moments: Selections from the Light Work Collection
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Light Work presents Queer Moments: Selections from the Light Work Collection, with work by Laura Aguilar, Samantha Box, Jess T. Dugan, John Edmonds, Ajamu (Ikwe-Tyehimba), Mark McKnight, Rory Mulligan, Billy Quinn, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Pacifico Silano, Clarissa Sligh, Linn Underhill, and Albert Winn. These selected works address image-making practices and themes that articulate and make visible LGBTQ+ history through photography. Queer Moments highlights the historical contributions of LGBTQ+ artists to the Light Work Collection.

Queer Moments presents photographs by artists who participated in Light Work's programs between 1992-2019. The images reflect narratives in particular historical moments, from Albert Winn's Band-Aid Series (1999) at the height of the AIDS crisis to Pacifico Silano's Untitled (2016). Queer Moments acknowledges the Light Work Collection's role as an accessible resource for contemporary art, history, and activism. These artists used their cameras to boldly confront inequities in our society and give visual expression to the experience of marginalized communities. Photographs from Samantha Box, Rory Mulligan, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya embody the range of diverse genres in contemporary photography, including documentary, experimental, and conceptual work.

Clifford Prince King: We Used To Lay Together
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

The fall season begins with We Used to Lay Together, an exhibition from Los Angeles-based photographer Clifford Prince King. A self-taught queer Black artist, King uses his life and experiences as starting points to explore desire, intimacy, and daily life. He often depicts himself and others within the beige domestic spaces common to L.A. We see a brotherhood of men enacting moments of domestic bliss, nude bodies in the moments before or after a sexual encounter, and the daily routine and side effects of living with HIV. King's colorful images show us the casual intimacy of his life in Los Angeles. It has been a joy for us at Light Work to learn about his approach, influences, and experience as we have collaborated on curating this exhibition. As his community confronts erasure and heteronormative flattening of their identity, we're excited to share this insider's intentional gaze.

Composed of over 52 contemporary artworks by Haudenosaunee artists from all six Haudenosaunee Nations across what is now New York, this exhibit takes a closer look at the multiple sources of inspiration in contemporary Haudenosaunee art including: treaties, the natural world, community and family members, ancestors, oral histories, and connection to land. Collectively, the artworks in this exhibit break convention by challenging the expected, disrupting stereotypes and non-Haudenosaunee historical narratives.

Mutual Affection: The Victoria Schonfeld Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Victoria Schonfeld (1950-2019) was a prominent New York lawyer, collector, and philanthropist whose discerning eye was matched only by the fierceness of devotion to her friends. From the time she began collecting ceramics in the 1990s, Schonfeld developed lasting friendships with the artists who caught her eye. Schonfeld was particularly devoted to championing female artists, including Betty Woodman, Alison Britton, and Carol McNicoll, as well as younger artists like Lauren Mabry and Rain Harris. Her taste encompassed everything from classical beauty to pointedly political works, all linked by her boundless curiosity.

Long before her untimely death, Schonfeld began donating works by artists she admired to museums across the United States, including the Everson Museum of Art. It is with the deepest gratitude that the Everson accepts key works from the Schonfeld collection that will endure as a tribute to her generosity and lasting network of friendships. Mutual Affection marks the debut of the Victoria Schonfeld Collection at the Everson, fleshed out by additional works loaned by her family and friends. Each object in this exhibition stands on its own merit, but also represents a node in Schonfeld's vast network of reciprocal relationships.

Cheryl Dunn: Licking the Bowl
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 2002, while a resident at the Ohio State University's Wexner Center for the Arts, filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn documented "Free Basin," a sculptural project created by the multidisciplinary art collective Simparch. "Free Basin" was a large elevated, kidney-shaped skate bowl that was fully accessible to skaters in the community to use during gallery hours. Dunn's 15-minute film Licking the Bowl captures the energy of Free Basin using lyrical passages of skaters in motion punctuated with interviews and stark black and white still photographs.

AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

AbStranded features 10 contemporary American artists — Polly Apfelbaum, Paolo Arao, Sanford Biggers, Samantha Bittman, Julia Bland, Rachel B. Hayes, Elana Herzog, Anne Lindberg, Sheila Pepe, and Sarah Zapata — who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large — through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more — and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today's digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Noli Me Tangere: Works by Kelvin Burzon
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Noli Me Tangere, "touch me not" or "don't tread on me," (Latin) is a series of photographs that examines an internal conflict of homosexuality and Catholicism. The photographs address, but don't aim to solve, the contentions between religion and homosexuality. Utilizing appropriated religious imagery and language, the work is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members and activists posing as Catholic deities. Themes, lighting and color treatment are adopted from the works of Renaissance Artists. The photographs are then presented as polyptychs in mimicry of Catholic altar-pieces.

Living in Limbo: Portraits from the Border by Bill McLaughlin
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Artist Bill McLaughlin of New Berlin, NY, traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, in December 2019 to photograph the migrants and asylum seekers left stranded at the border. They were stranded due to the January 2019 abrupt change in US immigration policy informally known as "Remain in Mexico" in which asylum seekers at the US/Mexico border were returned to Mexico to wait, often for many months, for their immigration proceedings.

Working with the non-profit organization Border Angels, McLaughlin spent several weeks meeting migrants, listening to their stories and asking to take their portraits. His intimate 'retratos con dignidad' — portraits with dignity — document individuals and families who McLaughlin says "have sacrificed everything in an attempt to save their children from brutal gang violence, crushing poverty and the ravages of political corruption."

Hito Steyerl: Strike (2010)
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Steyerl's work explores late capitalism's social, cultural, and financial imaginaries. Strike is a short, humorous film squarely in the tradition of Fluxus performance and wordplay. The title of the work plays on the double meaning of the word "strike." Most obviously, a strike is a physically violent gesture, in this case against a flatscreen monitor, both a commodity and an object that, when working, "disappears" behind the spectacle it presents. On the other hand, a strike is a strategic refusal to work. The double meaning here short circuits our contemporary split identity as consumer-workers.

Screening begins at dusk.

Queer Moments highlights the historical contributions of LGBTQ+ artists to the Light Work Collection.

Queer Moments presents photographs by artists who participated in Light Work's programs between 1992-2019. The images reflect narratives in particular historical moments, from Albert Winn's Band-Aid Series (1999) at the height of the AIDS crisis to Pacifico Silano's Untitled (2016). Queer Moments acknowledges the Light Work Collection's role as an accessible resource for contemporary art, history, and activism. These artists used their cameras to boldly confront inequities in our society and give visual expression to the experience of marginalized communities. Photographs from Samantha Box, Rory Mulligan, and Paul Mpagi Sepuya embody the range of diverse genres in contemporary photography, including documentary, experimental, and conceptual work.

Clifford Prince King: We Used To Lay Together
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

The fall season begins with We Used to Lay Together, an exhibition from Los Angeles-based photographer Clifford Prince King. A self-taught queer Black artist, King uses his life and experiences as starting points to explore desire, intimacy, and daily life. He often depicts himself and others within the beige domestic spaces common to L.A. We see a brotherhood of men enacting moments of domestic bliss, nude bodies in the moments before or after a sexual encounter, and the daily routine and side effects of living with HIV. King's colorful images show us the casual intimacy of his life in Los Angeles. It has been a joy for us at Light Work to learn about his approach, influences, and experience as we have collaborated on curating this exhibition. As his community confronts erasure and heteronormative flattening of their identity, we're excited to share this insider's intentional gaze.

Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Victoria Schonfeld (1950-2019) was a prominent New York lawyer, collector, and philanthropist whose discerning eye was matched only by the fierceness of devotion to her friends. From the time she began collecting ceramics in the 1990s, Schonfeld developed lasting friendships with the artists who caught her eye. Schonfeld was particularly devoted to championing female artists, including Betty Woodman, Alison Britton, and Carol McNicoll, as well as younger artists like Lauren Mabry and Rain Harris. Her taste encompassed everything from classical beauty to pointedly political works, all linked by her boundless curiosity.

Long before her untimely death, Schonfeld began donating works by artists she admired to museums across the United States, including the Everson Museum of Art. It is with the deepest gratitude that the Everson accepts key works from the Schonfeld collection that will endure as a tribute to her generosity and lasting network of friendships. Mutual Affection marks the debut of the Victoria Schonfeld Collection at the Everson, fleshed out by additional works loaned by her family and friends. Each object in this exhibition stands on its own merit, but also represents a node in Schonfeld's vast network of reciprocal relationships.

In 2002, while a resident at the Ohio State University's Wexner Center for the Arts, filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn documented "Free Basin," a sculptural project created by the multidisciplinary art collective Simparch. "Free Basin" was a large elevated, kidney-shaped skate bowl that was fully accessible to skaters in the community to use during gallery hours. Dunn's 15-minute film Licking the Bowl captures the energy of Free Basin using lyrical passages of skaters in motion punctuated with interviews and stark black and white still photographs.

Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

AbStranded features 10 contemporary American artists — Polly Apfelbaum, Paolo Arao, Sanford Biggers, Samantha Bittman, Julia Bland, Rachel B. Hayes, Elana Herzog, Anne Lindberg, Sheila Pepe, and Sarah Zapata — who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large — through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more — and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today's digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Noli Me Tangere, "touch me not" or "don't tread on me," (Latin) is a series of photographs that examines an internal conflict of homosexuality and Catholicism. The photographs address, but don't aim to solve, the contentions between religion and homosexuality. Utilizing appropriated religious imagery and language, the work is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members and activists posing as Catholic deities. Themes, lighting and color treatment are adopted from the works of Renaissance Artists. The photographs are then presented as polyptychs in mimicry of Catholic altar-pieces.

Living in Limbo: Portraits from the Border by Bill McLaughlin
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Artist Bill McLaughlin of New Berlin, NY, traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, in December 2019 to photograph the migrants and asylum seekers left stranded at the border. They were stranded due to the January 2019 abrupt change in US immigration policy informally known as "Remain in Mexico" in which asylum seekers at the US/Mexico border were returned to Mexico to wait, often for many months, for their immigration proceedings.

Working with the non-profit organization Border Angels, McLaughlin spent several weeks meeting migrants, listening to their stories and asking to take their portraits. His intimate 'retratos con dignidad' — portraits with dignity — document individuals and families who McLaughlin says "have sacrificed everything in an attempt to save their children from brutal gang violence, crushing poverty and the ravages of political corruption."

Hito Steyerl: Strike (2010)
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Steyerl's work explores late capitalism's social, cultural, and financial imaginaries. Strike is a short, humorous film squarely in the tradition of Fluxus performance and wordplay. The title of the work plays on the double meaning of the word "strike." Most obviously, a strike is a physically violent gesture, in this case against a flatscreen monitor, both a commodity and an object that, when working, "disappears" behind the spectacle it presents. On the other hand, a strike is a strategic refusal to work. The double meaning here short circuits our contemporary split identity as consumer-workers.

Screening begins at dusk.

Nature's Magic: Photography by Lisa Davis and Dean Kolts

Price: Free
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd., Marcellus

"Nature's Magic" is illustrated through the whimsical creations of Lisa Davis and the wonder-inspired photographs of Dean Kolts. Visitors to the exhibit will find that Dean Kolts' work speaks to his sense of wonder regarding the smaller worlds around us that we may rarely notice. His colorful digital photography provides us with a close-up look at parts of plants and fungi just as they would appear to us in nature. In Lisa Davis' award-winning work, we see the wonder of nature transformed into the whimsical. Careful observation has led her to the discovery of little heads, fanciful clothing and delicate wings among the flowers in the garden at her country home. Davis' fairy creations, combined with a relatively new art form called scanography, brings nature to life!

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

AbStranded features 10 contemporary American artists — Polly Apfelbaum, Paolo Arao, Sanford Biggers, Samantha Bittman, Julia Bland, Rachel B. Hayes, Elana Herzog, Anne Lindberg, Sheila Pepe, and Sarah Zapata — who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large — through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more — and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today's digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Cheryl Dunn: Licking the Bowl
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 2002, while a resident at the Ohio State University's Wexner Center for the Arts, filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn documented "Free Basin," a sculptural project created by the multidisciplinary art collective Simparch. "Free Basin" was a large elevated, kidney-shaped skate bowl that was fully accessible to skaters in the community to use during gallery hours. Dunn's 15-minute film Licking the Bowl captures the energy of Free Basin using lyrical passages of skaters in motion punctuated with interviews and stark black and white still photographs.

Mutual Affection: The Victoria Schonfeld Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Victoria Schonfeld (1950-2019) was a prominent New York lawyer, collector, and philanthropist whose discerning eye was matched only by the fierceness of devotion to her friends. From the time she began collecting ceramics in the 1990s, Schonfeld developed lasting friendships with the artists who caught her eye. Schonfeld was particularly devoted to championing female artists, including Betty Woodman, Alison Britton, and Carol McNicoll, as well as younger artists like Lauren Mabry and Rain Harris. Her taste encompassed everything from classical beauty to pointedly political works, all linked by her boundless curiosity.

Long before her untimely death, Schonfeld began donating works by artists she admired to museums across the United States, including the Everson Museum of Art. It is with the deepest gratitude that the Everson accepts key works from the Schonfeld collection that will endure as a tribute to her generosity and lasting network of friendships. Mutual Affection marks the debut of the Victoria Schonfeld Collection at the Everson, fleshed out by additional works loaned by her family and friends. Each object in this exhibition stands on its own merit, but also represents a node in Schonfeld's vast network of reciprocal relationships.

Clifford Prince King: We Used To Lay Together
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

The fall season begins with We Used to Lay Together, an exhibition from Los Angeles-based photographer Clifford Prince King. A self-taught queer Black artist, King uses his life and experiences as starting points to explore desire, intimacy, and daily life. He often depicts himself and others within the beige domestic spaces common to L.A. We see a brotherhood of men enacting moments of domestic bliss, nude bodies in the moments before or after a sexual encounter, and the daily routine and side effects of living with HIV. King's colorful images show us the casual intimacy of his life in Los Angeles. It has been a joy for us at Light Work to learn about his approach, influences, and experience as we have collaborated on curating this exhibition. As his community confronts erasure and heteronormative flattening of their identity, we're excited to share this insider's intentional gaze.

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Noli Me Tangere, "touch me not" or "don't tread on me," (Latin) is a series of photographs that examines an internal conflict of homosexuality and Catholicism. The photographs address, but don't aim to solve, the contentions between religion and homosexuality. Utilizing appropriated religious imagery and language, the work is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members and activists posing as Catholic deities. Themes, lighting and color treatment are adopted from the works of Renaissance Artists. The photographs are then presented as polyptychs in mimicry of Catholic altar-pieces.

Living in Limbo: Portraits from the Border by Bill McLaughlin
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Artist Bill McLaughlin of New Berlin, NY, traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, in December 2019 to photograph the migrants and asylum seekers left stranded at the border. They were stranded due to the January 2019 abrupt change in US immigration policy informally known as "Remain in Mexico" in which asylum seekers at the US/Mexico border were returned to Mexico to wait, often for many months, for their immigration proceedings.

Working with the non-profit organization Border Angels, McLaughlin spent several weeks meeting migrants, listening to their stories and asking to take their portraits. His intimate 'retratos con dignidad' — portraits with dignity — document individuals and families who McLaughlin says "have sacrificed everything in an attempt to save their children from brutal gang violence, crushing poverty and the ravages of political corruption."

Dugan, John Edmonds, Ajamu (Ikwe-Tyehimba), Mark McKnight, Rory Mulligan, Billy Quinn, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Pacifico Silano, Clarissa Sligh, Linn Underhill, and Albert Winn.

Clifford Prince King: We Used To Lay Together
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

The fall season begins with We Used to Lay Together, an exhibition from Los Angeles-based photographer Clifford Prince King. A self-taught queer Black artist, King uses his life and experiences as starting points to explore desire, intimacy, and daily life. He often depicts himself and others within the beige domestic spaces common to L.A. We see a brotherhood of men enacting moments of domestic bliss, nude bodies in the moments before or after a sexual encounter, and the daily routine and side effects of living with HIV. King's colorful images show us the casual intimacy of his life in Los Angeles. It has been a joy for us at Light Work to learn about his approach, influences, and experience as we have collaborated on curating this exhibition. As his community confronts erasure and heteronormative flattening of their identity, we're excited to share this insider's intentional gaze.

Mutual Affection: The Victoria Schonfeld Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Victoria Schonfeld (1950-2019) was a prominent New York lawyer, collector, and philanthropist whose discerning eye was matched only by the fierceness of devotion to her friends. From the time she began collecting ceramics in the 1990s, Schonfeld developed lasting friendships with the artists who caught her eye. Schonfeld was particularly devoted to championing female artists, including Betty Woodman, Alison Britton, and Carol McNicoll, as well as younger artists like Lauren Mabry and Rain Harris. Her taste encompassed everything from classical beauty to pointedly political works, all linked by her boundless curiosity.

Long before her untimely death, Schonfeld began donating works by artists she admired to museums across the United States, including the Everson Museum of Art. It is with the deepest gratitude that the Everson accepts key works from the Schonfeld collection that will endure as a tribute to her generosity and lasting network of friendships. Mutual Affection marks the debut of the Victoria Schonfeld Collection at the Everson, fleshed out by additional works loaned by her family and friends. Each object in this exhibition stands on its own merit, but also represents a node in Schonfeld's vast network of reciprocal relationships.

Cheryl Dunn: Licking the Bowl
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 2002, while a resident at the Ohio State University's Wexner Center for the Arts, filmmaker and photographer Cheryl Dunn documented "Free Basin," a sculptural project created by the multidisciplinary art collective Simparch. "Free Basin" was a large elevated, kidney-shaped skate bowl that was fully accessible to skaters in the community to use during gallery hours. Dunn's 15-minute film Licking the Bowl captures the energy of Free Basin using lyrical passages of skaters in motion punctuated with interviews and stark black and white still photographs.

AbStranded: Fiber and Abstraction in Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

AbStranded features 10 contemporary American artists — Polly Apfelbaum, Paolo Arao, Sanford Biggers, Samantha Bittman, Julia Bland, Rachel B. Hayes, Elana Herzog, Anne Lindberg, Sheila Pepe, and Sarah Zapata — who use fiber-based materials to investigate the complex lineage of abstraction. Utilizing a diverse variety of methods, styles, and forms, these artists uncover and co-opt textile traditions and material sources in order to re-assert their validity and relevance in an increasingly global-industrial culture. A prominent use of the hand looms large — through knitting, weaving, quilting, and more — and suggests an alternative mode of communication within today's digital society. Together, the works reveal how artists employ the language of abstraction to speak about the intertwined histories and politics of craft, race, and gender.

Noli Me Tangere: Works by Kelvin Burzon
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Noli Me Tangere, "touch me not" or "don't tread on me," (Latin) is a series of photographs that examines an internal conflict of homosexuality and Catholicism. The photographs address, but don't aim to solve, the contentions between religion and homosexuality. Utilizing appropriated religious imagery and language, the work is recontextualized by the insertion of LGBTQ members and activists posing as Catholic deities. Themes, lighting and color treatment are adopted from the works of Renaissance Artists. The photographs are then presented as polyptychs in mimicry of Catholic altar-pieces.

Living in Limbo: Portraits from the Border by Bill McLaughlin
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Artist Bill McLaughlin of New Berlin, NY, traveled to Tijuana, Mexico, in December 2019 to photograph the migrants and asylum seekers left stranded at the border. They were stranded due to the January 2019 abrupt change in US immigration policy informally known as "Remain in Mexico" in which asylum seekers at the US/Mexico border were returned to Mexico to wait, often for many months, for their immigration proceedings.

Working with the non-profit organization Border Angels, McLaughlin spent several weeks meeting migrants, listening to their stories and asking to take their portraits. His intimate 'retratos con dignidad' — portraits with dignity — document individuals and families who McLaughlin says "have sacrificed everything in an attempt to save their children from brutal gang violence, crushing poverty and the ravages of political corruption."

Hito Steyerl: Strike (2010)
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Steyerl's work explores late capitalism's social, cultural, and financial imaginaries. Strike is a short, humorous film squarely in the tradition of Fluxus performance and wordplay. The title of the work plays on the double meaning of the word "strike." Most obviously, a strike is a physically violent gesture, in this case against a flatscreen monitor, both a commodity and an object that, when working, "disappears" behind the spectacle it presents. On the other hand, a strike is a strategic refusal to work. The double meaning here short circuits our contemporary split identity as consumer-workers.

Screening begins at dusk.
