Urban Video Project (UVP) and parent organization Light Work are pleased to announce the exhibition and world premiere of “Crow Requiem,” a new video work by artist and filmmaker Cauleen Smith, from April 7-May 30, 2015. The exhibition will take place at UVP’s Everson venue, a year-round outdoor projection onto the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art located in downtown Syracuse, N.Y. The projection will run every Thursday through Saturday from dusk until 11p.m. “Crow Requiem” was created by Smith for UVP during her December 2014 residency at Light Work.
The artist will discuss her practice at two related events on April 7, 2015. Smith will deliver a formal artist talk from 2-4 p.m. in Shemin Auditorium on the Syracuse University Campus. Smith will also present her work as part of Speculations: Science Fiction, Chronopolitics, and Social Change —a panel talk, performance, and reception—beginning at 6:30pm in the Hosmer Auditorium at the Everson Museum. A reception and special Tuesday night screening will follow on the plaza.
A related workshop, DIY Time Travel in the Afrofuture with Rasheedah Phillips, Creator of The AfroFuturist Affair and blackquantumfuturism and ¼ founding member of metropolarity Speculative Fiction Collective, will take place from 11:00a.m.-12:30p.m. on April 7, 2015 at Light Work Lab located at 316 Waverly Ave. in Syracuse, NY.
