Conversations & Screenings, 2019-20 AIR, Watch & Listen 2021

Join us for the online premiere of  new videos by 2019–20 artist in residence Elliot Reed. Created during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, each video tempers with the absence of a live audience. Centering imagination as a tool to craft memory and history, Reed renders onscreen his attempts to seek pleasure in the midst of disaster. A post-screening talkback will feature Reed and filmmaker, performance artist, and writer Jack Waters in an intergenerational exchange drawing from their shared practices in embodied and time-based media. 

This program will feature live CART captioning. RSVP to receive a Zoom link. 

Studio Screen: Elliot Reed's New Videos (2020–21) is presented on the occasion of This Longing Vessel: Studio Museum Artists in Residence 2019–20, held at MoMA PS1 while the Studio Museum constructs a new building on the site of its longtime home on West 125th Street.
