Diane Bonder: You Are Not from Here
May 13 & 17, 2006
Diane Bonder's poetic semi-narrative and documentary film and media
works explore themes of identity. This exhibition spans ten years of
the Brooklyn-based artist's Super-8, 16mm, and video work. Bonders
shooting and editing style intimately marks the passage of time and
poetically engages the viewer. Each theme is presented within a
social and philosophical framework, coupled with compassion, subtle
humor, and intelligence.
Organized by Sally Berger, Assistant Curator, Department of Film and Media.
