Adam Abel: "Palestine Interrupted"

Saturday, March 09 - 11:40AM to 12:00PM
Honore Ballroom

"Palestine Interrupted" is an installation of nine short, looped videos that are arranged on separate monitors and mapped out in the shape of a circle. The videos range in length from three seconds to four minutes.

Abel will use narratives from Palestine to disrupt narratives about Palestine. Predictable images of military, checkpoints, walls and violence are absent in his videos. Through fragmented vignettes and sensorial experience, He weave's together moments that are melancholic, hopeful, mundane and anxious.
