Conversations From The Edge – School of Art Institue Chicago

Impermanent Display Conversations From The Edge- School of Art Institue Chicago

Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St. Chicago

Tel Aviv–born, New York–based artist Dana Levy is known for her symbolically resonant studies of art museums, natural history collections, and other sites of preservation. Her careful choreography meditates on the political and environmental histories that undergird their display, often highlighting processes of migration and displacement. She presents a selection of works shot at the Mazor Mausoleum archaeological site in Petah Tikva, Israel; Maison de l’Armateur in Le Havre, France; and Invertebrate Zoology department of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, PA, in addition to a series of new films created as part of a residency in the Everglades National Park. Presented in collaboration with the Video Data Bank.
