Drones by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky

Jan 17-Mar 24

Drones by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky 

Rotary Ice House Gallery - 10 AM

Drones are in the news. They carry out targeted killings; they are manned with cameras to record movements on the ground; hobbyists fly them in public spaces; Amazon wants to use them to deliver their products. Appropriating visual juxtapositions from the surrealists and kitsch sic-fi invasion films, Karina Aguilera Skvirsky's Drones, is a series of photo-collages that put flying objects into our aerial landscapes. This series includes landscapes from US, Ecuador and other unidentifiable locations. Skvirsky is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, video and performance. Her work has been exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions. She teaches at Lafayette College and The New School, Parsons School of Design. Lecture: Feb. 2, from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall Auditorium. Opening reception: Friday, Feb. 2, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.

BLACK MARIA FILM FESTIVAL

BLACK MARIA FILM FESTIVAL 

Pollak Theatre - 6:30 PM

The Black Maria Film Festival was founded in 1981 as a tribute to Thomas Edison's development of the motion picture at his laboratory, dubbed the "Black Maria" film studio, the first in the world, in West Orange, NJ. Now in its 36th year, the festival attracts and showcases the work of independent filmmakers internationally. The festival is a project of the Thomas A. Edison Media Arts Consortium, an independent non-profit organization in residence at New Jersey City University's Department of Media Arts. Unlike other major film festivals, the Black Maria Festival is not presented in only one location. Instead, the winning films are presented at universities, museums, libraries and cultural centers across the country all year.
