Screening: Part I
Betts Auditorium, 6:30pm
The screening will be introduced by curators Mario Gandelsonas and Curt Gambetta and will close with a Q&A with the students.
“Liquid Landscapes” presents an architectural reading of how water infrastructure, rivers and waterways shape everyday life in urban settings. Together, individually produced videos form a collective "documentary" about existing and imagined everyday lives in the fluvial New York City region. Videos are anchored to specific sites and characters whose everyday lives take us into different narratives. The works are part of a single project rather than an exhibition of individual constituents: if each video shows the author's unique point of view and their interlocutors, then the collection focuses attention on the heterogeneity of “Liquid Landscapes” that define the fluvial character of the New York metropolitan region.
The selected films are currently featured in the 12th International Architecture Biennale of São Paulo, Everyday.
