Valenzuela’s new short film to premiere at Frye Art Museum

upforgallery:

Prole by Rodrigo Valenzuela, 2015. Single-channel digital video with audio.

Prole is an experimental short film about our inability to perform cohesively in order to confront institutional structures and power. It reflects on the decay of unions in contemporary life, and the decline of their power. In the film, a company soccer team goes on strike. Personal issues join forces with intractable problems at the office and fundamental misunderstandings about the game.
—Rodrigo Valenzuela

This new video work by Valenzuela premieres at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, WA this Tuesday, October 20, 2015 and will screen through November 15. This work was commissioned by the Frye Art Museum and funded by the Frye Foundation.
