The Skowhegan Alliance Video Committee presents Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!, a video program of work made by Skowhegan alumni. The screening will take place May 4 at Skowhegan's New York program Space.
The works reflect the various meanings of mayday:
Mayday, from French m'aider, translated as help me: a distress signal
May Day, a Spring festivity with Pagan origins (such as Beltane, Flora, and Walpurgisnacht): rites of change and renewal
May Day, or International Worker's Day: celebration of workers' and labor rights
The screening features videos from artists:
Itziar Barrio (A '12), David Brody (A '83), Janaye Brown (A '16), Vincent Ceraudo (A '16), Jesse England (A '15), Hope Ginsburg (A '97), Autumn Knight (A '16) and Chelsea Knight (A '08), Neven Lochhead (A '15), Pascual Sisto (A '11), Nicole Tschampel (A '01), Asim Waqif (A '11), and Brian Zegeer (A '10)
The screening will coincide with the opening of Personals, an exhibition of small objects on the conference table upstairs from the screening.
