The Future Must No Longer Be Determined By The Past


State of Emergency – November 16, 2017 at the intersection of Bowery at Prince NYC featuring the work of 60 video artists and filmmakers, curated by Lenore Malen & Nina Felshin

state of emergency 1. a situation of national danger or disaster in which a government suspends normal constitutional procedures in order to regain control. 

STATE OF EMERGENCY  A madman steps out of a television screen to become President of the United States. His abuse of power and disregard for civil and human rights has produced what feels to many like a state of emergency. Could this seismic shift perhaps offer the potential for greater solidarity and community? Rather than a single narrative we view this collective effort as a metaphor, not an illustration, of what is possible.

This project is a collaboration between Nina and myself, the media collective The Illuminators, projection designer Eamonn Farrell, and all the artists.
