Sofía Gallisá Muriente: Lluvia con nieve (Rain with Snow)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1955, Paramount News, "the eyes and ears of the world," projected in movie theaters around the United States images of a plane landing in Puerto Rico carrying two tons of snow and a family from New Hampshire and of the thousands of Puerto Rican youth that received them in a baseball field. These 40 seconds of film are possibly the only surviving audiovisual document of an event that persists as a foggy memory in the conscience of most Puerto Ricans.

Rain with Snow is a double projection that tries to visualize the ideological production processes behind these images of political spectacle, zooming in, stretching out, and manipulating the last cinematic vestige of this moment to interrogate the role of images in the formation of national identity. 2014, 13:30

Sofía Gallisá Muriente is a Puerto Rican visual artist whose work resists colonial forces of erasure and claims the freedom of historical agency, proposing mechanisms for remembering and reimagining.

Screening begins at dusk.
