Media artist Jayce Salloum will discuss and present videotapes from ‘untitled’, his ongoing multi-channel video installation and videotape addressing social and political realities and representations, manifestations, and enunciations, focusing on borders/nationalisms/ movements (shifts, transitions, and interstitial space/time) and subjectivity and the conditions of living between polarities of culture, geography, history, and ideology. The latest segment of this project centers on the Palestinian dispossession, and a personal response to trying to make something meaningful out of art production. Salloum has worked in installation, photography, video, text, and performance since 1975, as well as curating exhibitions, conducting workshops and coordinating cultural projects.
Co-sponsored by Center for Religion & Media and Center for Media, Culture & History.
