Shimon Attie’s MetroPAL.IS, an immersive video installation supported by the Wexner Center's Film/Video Studio Program, tackles the Arab-Israeli conflict. Members of New York’s Palestinian and Israeli communities perform a text that combines sections of the Israeli Declaration of Independence (1948) and the Palestinian Declaration of Independence (1988), revealing their surprising similarities.
MetroPAL.IS., a video installation by Shimon Attie, with Vale Bruck, commissioned by The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum.
Paul Sietsema’s multimedia work in film, drawing, and painting explores how many bodies of knowledge—about history, culture, and art itself—are far more fluid and mutable than we assume them to be. Featuring the debut of a new film supported by a Wexner Center Artist Residency Award, this exhibition is the most comprehensive to date for the artist, who is based in Los Angeles.
Residency and Wexner Center exhibition made possible with support from the Teiger Foundation, the Nimoy Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Please note that the walk-in tour on Sunday, July 21, 2013 has been canceled.
