Filmmaker and current artist-in-residence James N. Kienitz Wilkins invites artist David Levine to discuss and screen the 1973 cult film Messiah of Evil at Triangle. Levine’s selection comes out of an ongoing conversation between the two artists about the pleasures of genre films, and the difficulty more critical discourses have in addressing, mastering, or submitting to them.
Triangle, New York hosts Antonio Serna of artists of color bloc and Todd Ayoung of Pratt Social Practice, to facilitate a debriefing discussion along with Aurora P. Robinson from Black Lives Matter (Pratt). The discussion will be centered around a screening of Flag Wars (2007), a film by Linda Goode Bryant & Laura Poitras; it documents the gentrification of a community in Columbus, Ohio and raises issues concerning intersectionality. This event follows the Brooklyn Community Forum on Anti-Gentrification and Displacement slated for July 24, 2016 at the Brooklyn Museum.
