James Coleman is renowned for his conceptual experiments with memory and perception, which examine the status of images and their mediation through time. Coleman’s influential work with film and video since the 1970s has become a touchstone for discussions of visual postmodernism and contemporary image culture. Despite being an influence on countless artists, Coleman’s work remains underseen in the United States. This special screening presents Coleman’s film Retake with Evidence (2007), which was originally shown as an installation in Documenta 12. Starring Harvey Keitel, the film considers issues of judgment and social justice through the lens of the “Western subject” and its formation through Ancient Greek thought and philosophy. The screening is followed by a conversation moderated by Stuart Comer, Chief Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art.Buy tickets/get more info now
