Pratt Institute | 200 Willoughby Ave

Location: Film Video 102: Screening Room

Film/video artist, Peggy Ahwesh will join us to discuss her work and creative process over the last forty years. Ahwesh is a New York based media artist whose work since the '70s has traversed a variety of technologies and styles in an inquiry into feminism, cultural identity, and genre. Ahwesh’s practice insists on political and social topicality handled with theoretical rigor, while at the same time using humor and the absurd in an open embrace of the inexplicable. Ahwesh studied with Tony Conrad, Paul Sharits, and Janis Crystal Lipson at Antioch College. Recent exhibitions include: Two Serious Ladies (2015) Murray Guy, NYC; Plagiarist of My Unconscious Mind! (2014) Château Shatto, LA, and Kissing Point (2014) Microscope, Brooklyn. Find her on the web at Senses of Cinema; This Long Century, and Electronic Arts Intermix.
