Indoor Screening and Q&A with Lorna Mills, Emily Vey Duke, and Tom Sherman
March 21, 6:30pm, Hosmer Auditorium
In conjunction with the exhibition, Mills will be present for a special screening of her ambitious project, Ways of Something (Episodes 3 and 4), a collaborative re-make of John Berger’s influential 1972 documentary “Ways of Seeing,” which explored the hidden forces of power, wealth, and desire at work in traditional notions of art. For Ways of Something, Mills crowd-sourced with over 115 digital and new media artists to produce minute long videos inspired by each minute of the original, producing an amazing homage that takes the viewer on a tour art in a post-internet age. Syracuse-based participating artists Emily Vey Duke and Tom Sherman will join Mills for a Q&A following the screening.
