Hands as Far as the Eye Can See

April 5th


Albright Knox Art Gallery

FREE & Open to the Public

Join us at the Albright Knox Art Gallery during their ‘First Fridays’ for a screening of student works made in response to artist Htein Lin’s exhibition “A Show of Hands”. This multi-youth program project explores the work of Artist Htein Lin as a jumping off point to create multi-media works that look at the role of hands and the stories of people. Squeaky Wheel’s two flagship media arts programs, West Side Studio, and Buffalo Youth Media Institute produced individual works that circle around the image and performance of the hand as a common visual connection between all the works. The pieces will explore everything from personal stories, food traditions, and even include poems from Just Buffalo’s Writing Center’s young writers. This screening will be a series of vignettes that relate and react to the work of Htein Lin as well as highlight the depth and talent of media arts in Buffalo young makers.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the young filmmakers.

Information about Htein Lin’s exhibition can be found here.
