SCREENING of DO OUTRO LADO DO RIO (Across the River)
by LUCAS BAMBOZZI
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9 3:30 — 5:00pm
in the LAXART LOFT
Join Glenn Phillips and Elena Shtromberg, curators of Pacific Standard Time LA/LA: Video Art in Latin America, for a discussion and tour of exhibition highlights. Featuring more than 60 time-based works from over 19 countries, this show surveys groundbreaking achievements and important thematic tendencies in Latin American video from the 1960s to the present.
Following the walk through, LAXART will present a special screening of the documentary Do Outro Lado do Rio (Across the River) (2004, 88 minutes) by artist Lucas Bambozzi, whose video Oiapoque-L’Oyapock(1998, 10 mins) in the Borders and Migrations program is a prequel to this feature length film. Exploring the highly transited border between Oiapoque, Brazil and St. Georges de L’Oyapock, French Guyana, the artist documents the stories of Brazilians who are dissatisfied with the conditions they live in and seek to cross into the French territory laying just across the river.
This exhibition is curated by Glenn Phillips, Curator and Head of Modern & Contemporary Collections at the Getty Research Institute, and Elena Shtromberg, Associate Professor of Art History, University of Utah.
Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty with art institutions across Southern California. The presenting sponsor is Bank of America. Major support for this exhibition is provided through a grant from the Getty Foundation. This exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute.
