Matthew Buckingham Monday, May 9 at 8pm
Buckingham, whose film installation A Man of the Crowd (2003) was recently acquired by MoMA, presents current projects as well as three films that investigate history as it is inscribed across the American landscape. In Muhheakantuck—Everything Has a Name (2003), the artist examines the ways in which European-American historians and cartographers have erased the indigenous people of the Hudson Valley from cultural memory. In Situation Leading to a Story (1999), Buckingham describes his quest to find the mysterious owner of four amateur movies from the 1920s. And in Amos Fortune Road (1996), two fictional characters on a New Hampshire road trip discover a historical marker about a little-known slave who bought his freedom in 1769. Program
