Master Class: The Conflicted Image with Alison Nguyen

Wednesday, March 20 th, 6-8pm

$10 Non-Members / $7 Members

Contact kevin@squeaky.org for registration or complete the registration form here. SPACE IS LIMITED!

Join us for an experimental media workshop led by Workspace resident artist Alison Nguyen. The workshop will explore strategies of critique, homage, voyeurism, parody, deconstruction, and fragmentation in works that have appropriated found footage while also teaching participants how to make their own short works using found footage.
 
A beginners knowledge of video editing is required.
 
The workshop will be divided equally between screenings, discussion, and practical explorations. Each participant will be given a thumb drive of heterogeneous found footage as a starting point, and they will produce their own investigations through a variety of manipulations and interventions using editing, re-filming, and projection processes.
 
Space is limited please contact kevin@squeaky.org for registration.
 
Alison Nguyen’s work explores the ways in which images are produced, disseminated, and consumed within the current media landscape, exposing the socio-political conditions from which they arise. Creating strategies for dissent, she re-articulates mainstream cinematic language in unsettlingly seductive installation, video, and sculptural works.
 
Alison Nguyen received her B.A. from Brown University. She has presented work at Ann Arbor Film Festival; CROSSROADS by San Francisco Cinematheque and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Microscope Gallery, Brooklyn, among others. She has received residencies and fellowships from The International Studio & Curatorial Program, Institute of Electronic Arts, BRIC, and Signal Culture. In 2018, Nguyen was featured in Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film.
