"Haunted Ethnography: new experimental documentary" is a group exhibition and related indoor screening event showcasing several recent video and experimental film works by emerging artists exploring the rich but problematic genre of ethnographic documentary as a locus of aesthetic and conceptual innovation in the medium. The exhibition features the work of Carl Elsaesser, Sky Hopinka, and João Vieira Torres. In this selection of works, the boundary between the ethnographic and the auto-ethnographic blurs, and the traditional ethnographic "encounter with the other" becomes troubled, twinned, dislocated, haunted.
This event is part of "UVP 2016-2017: Interzones," a year-long program at UVP and partner organizations that will feature the work of established and emerging artists who explore liminal states, haunted places and the space in between.
Screening begins at dusk.
