Found footage filmmaking is a practice involving reappropriating and remixing previously shot or created materials for new, innovative purposes. This new exhibition, curated by Dave Rodriguez, traces international trends and histories of found footage filmmaking over the past several decades. Cut Frames, Captured Pixels will be divided into three phases – “Cinematic Surfaces,” “Video and its Discontents,” and “Expanding Screens” –  which will unfold between January and March 2023. Each phase will feature a unique slate of artists whose work reflects different kinds of source materials and different styles of creative practice.  More info.

Un sentimento di libertà | A Feeling of Freedom, curated by Tenley Bick, celebrates the diverse identities and experiences of “new Italians” in portraits and digital paintings by the contemporary Afro-Italian artist Luigi Christopher Veggetti Kanku (b. 1978–). Conceived in relation to the artist’s international exhibitions of the digital artworks shown, which he organized in response to the inattention to Afro-Italian artists in arts institutions in Italy, this exhibition also includes new expressionist portraits that invite viewers to contemplate a feeling of freedom that comes from rethinking constructs of nationhood, identity, and belonging.

Curated by Grace Aneiza Alia, We Are Not Free to Move About the World explores how contemporary artists engage with the passport – an archive, document, symbol, object of migration, and instrument of mobility with control – to reflect one’s freedom of movement, or lack thereof. This exhibition examines how works by key contemporary global artists trouble the passport as agents of privilege, inequity, and control. This exhibition aims to investigate how artists treat the passport as an object of inquiry, both precious and stripped of its meaning, unpacking it as an urgent response to the global migration crisis.
