Pratt Institute | 200 Willoughby Avenue

Canceled from Memory is an experimental lecture/performance by Barbara Hammer, who will present a range of work that spans her 40-year practice as an avant-garde artist and filmmaker. Hammer has continually sought the historical and cultural visibility of marginalized individual and communities. She will combine lecture, screenings, performance, and installation to create an experimental space designed to encourage the critical engagement, activation, and political renewal of the audience. The event, which will take place in Pratt's new Film/Video building on the Brooklyn campus, is an episode in Pratt's Risk, Dare, Experiment (RiDE) series, which examines the unforeseen outcomes of experimentation in art.
