Sara Cwynar: Video screening and discussion moderated by Stuart Comer

Sara Cwynar’s six channel film, Glass Life (2021), a meditation on the relationship between images and the self will be screened with her films Rose Gold (2017) and Red Film (2018), precursors to Glass Life, for the first time together. Stuart Comer, The Lonti Ebers Chief Curator of Media, and Performance at MoMA will moderate a discussion with Cynwar after the screening. Sara Cwynar’s films and photography have been described as building on the legacy of the 1980s Pictures Generation. The artist is interested in how design and popular images work on our psyches, in how visual strategies infiltrate our consciousness. She considers how familiar, often sentimental images smooth over unpleasant realities, to cover up “the systems of control embedded within our social, economic, and political lives.”
